Junior Regional Final Results, Award Winners & Merit Team Reps

Congratulations to all our Sydney Scorpions teams and players for their success over the weekend at Tuggerah. A total of 52 teams from the six New South Wales Regions including Sydney Mets, Sydney Scorpions, Southern Rebels, West South West Suns, Hunter Western Hornets, Northern Eagles, and ACT Raiders – competed in the two day event at the excellent Central Coast Regional Sporting & Recreation Complex. Scorpions had six out of eight teams making Grand Finals with the Girls 14’s, Girls 16’s and Girls 18’s all being crowned champions. As a result Scorpions successfully retained their Champion Region title, making it 12 in a row and a total of 13 wins. It was noticeable to see a spread of regions contesting finals and the closeness of competition across all divisions through the finals series. Congratulations to West South West Suns and Hunter Western Hornets for finishing second and third placed respectively.  All our action and team photos can now be found via the Scorps website with many thanks to Matt Long Photography.

One of the highlights of our Sydney Scorpions 2021/22 representative season was our 2022 NTL Awards Dinner, where our Scorpions members ended up raising $5,390 for "In It For Ella". A few months on and Mia Wilson's fundraising target of $50,000 is very close to being reached. You can donate below to help her reach the target. Since 2014 Scorpions have raised $18,826 for worthy beneficiaries, something we are very proud of. #GoScorps #StrongerTogether

Congratulations to our Aussie Women's Rugby 7's Gold Medalists at the Commonwealth Games. What a dominate performance in the final against Fiji. Well done to the athletes and big congratulations to proud parents Edith Nathan and Te Aroha Paki. #aussie7s #CommGamesAUSNSW #SOO Coaches and sisters Edith Nathan and Roha Paki this morning became proud parents as they watched their daughters take GOLD in the #Aussie7s at this year's #CommGamesAus

Their daughters Faith Nathan and Sariah Paki have come through the #touchfooty pathways and have had some outstanding Touch Football Representative moments in their young lives, and this morning we watched them achieve a new goal.

But they are not alone.

A few more familiar "Touchies" from NSW and QLD joined them in Tia Hinds, Maddison Ashby, Charlotte Caslick, Dom Du Toit, and Assistant Coach Emily Cherry

We love seeing some of our talented female #touchfootball athletes become something bigger in their own right.
