State Champs (Open and Senior)

Results – 2015 State Champs

SWQ Swans had 7 teams competing at the State Champs which were held last weekend at Dolphin Oval, Redcliffe. We were fairly competitive across all of the divisions but it was only our Open Women, Women’s 20s and Women’s 35s who made it to the semi-final stage. Our Women’s 35s then progressed to the grand-final and recorded an emphatic 6 – 0 win over Sunny Coast. A great effort ladies!

Our region also had 11 referees officiating and it was great to hear that Miriam Hansen achieved an Open Level 4 upgrade and Michael del Castillo a Senior Level 4 upgrade. Congratulations to Kurtis Sankey who received the Open Encouragement award and a big thank-you to all of our referees for your efforts at this event.

SWQ Touch would like to thank all of our coaches and managers for the work they put in to their teams prior to and during the tournament. We would also like to acknowledge our physios (Felice, Carly and Ben) who provided a fantastic service for our players at the event.
