Another hard round for Hopperettes

May 18, 2016
A Grade – Lost 30 to 52.
A disappointing start to the game got us behind right from the get go.

More hunger and drive is needed by all to start being more competitive.

A strong second half showed just how good the girls could be, so let’s regroup and enjoy the break and come back strong.

Best on ground Paula Mifka taking home the Burkes Hotel Award and once again Brylee McCarty winning the Bella FemmeNess Award.

Brylee is becoming an integral part of the A grade side and is someone to watch out for. 

B Grade – Lost 33 to 42.
Wonderful game today by all girls on the court, great rebounding at both ends.  Although the girls won the first half, unfortunately they went down by nine.  Tough, hard fought match by veteran, Nada, what a champion.
