NZ U20 team at the Australian Junior State Championships

Hi all,

Handball Australia invited the New Zealand Under 20 Women team to their Junior State Championships. The tournament was held in Brisbane between the 31st of July and the 2nd of August and the Vikings were represented in the NZ U20 squad with 5 players – Maddy Hazelton, Lizzie Boyle, Alexandra Mair, Bridget Ireland and Catherine Graham.

Over the three days, the NZ women team played five games within the tournament schedule and also competed once in a friendly match against the U20 Australia team. The team played very well and showcased major improvements as team and the players as individuals while winning ALL six games.

Congratulations to the whole team for this awesome success and also a big thank you to the Coaches and to the Manager of the team for all their hard work and effort to prepare the team on their way to the IHF Trophy – Intercontinental Final, which is held later this year.
