Open girls finished in 5th place, while the Under 14 and 16 Girls both finished in 4th place, with Abbie's team finishing 3rd. These are fantastic results in tough competition. The Under 12s were excited and proud to play representative touch for SWQ Swans for the first time ever.
Glennie dad, Terry McSweeney, played a vital role in the organisation of this tournament in his position as Games Development Officer for Queensland Touch Football. Terry and his team did a wonderful job putting on the first major touch football event for the year. Our Glennie girls were very fortunate to have the opportunity to play in this high-level tournament at this world-class facility during the spring school holidays. Congratulations to all those involved!
