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. Further information will be provided in coming weeks in relation to the 2022 DoorDash National Youth Championships, which will be played on Wednesday 28 September – Saturday 1 October 2022 at Sunshine Coast Stadium with Scorpions sending teams and referees to this event.
