On Sunday 31st July, the Under 13 Team 1 and Under 15 Team 1 competed at the Traralgon Tournament. The players travelled up the day before and undertook a three-story ropes course. A huge thank-you to the parents for driving the players up and back. We were lucky to have some great weather and great results.
