Girls Grand Finals – Spring Season

Congratulations to our Grand Finalists:

  • U13s
  • U17s

The U15s were playing off for 5th / 6th position in their Comp.

U13 Hills

WPHC 4/63 drew with Parramatta – match Report to follow but wet weather caused a draw in this game. With Parramatta finishing higher in the Comp we came Runner-up for the Spring Comp.

U15 Spring Comp

WPHC 2/106 drew with Mercy Catholic College – another rain affected Final and with Mercy taking out the Minor Premiership the Girls finished as Runner-up. This was a disappointing outcome to a match that we had pretty much in control of.

U17 Spring Comp

WPHC Vs Castle Hill Thunder 3/95 – a shame the game was washed out as we had a real show after dismissing the powerful top order of Castle Hill.


The Spring season is now finished. The Summer Season though starts-up again after the Christmas / New Year break. Full details of how to Register will be provided early in the New Year so continue to watch the website for details.
