The Under 15 girls Touch team played incredibly well over two days at the Queensland All Schools Touch tournament. They competed against some of Queensland’s toughest Touch Football teams and came away with 4 wins out of 7 games. The girls were led by Co-Captains, Holly Smith and Holly Bertwistle, who displayed great leadership and skills in motivation. All the girls performed strongly on the field, displaying a high level of skill across a young team. The team should be extremely proud of their efforts.

The St Hilda’s 18s Touch team excelled both on and off the field this week! Our Year 12 girls showed great leadership and have set a good example for our young guns coming through. This younger members of the team are looking at a very promising future and were the engine behind a very successful campaign. We could not be prouder of the effort and sportsmanship shown in every single game, which were rewarded with a spot in the finals series. Unfortunately, the girls went down by one try in their first final to a team that went on to do very well in the following finals games. Not only did the girls show exceptional skill on the field, but multiple Queensland Touch staff complimented them on both their sportsmanship and their development since we started attending the competition a few years ago.

Overall, it was a very successful tournament and we can’t wait to try and go one further next year!
