Coona Open Girls’ Softball – A Force Awakens…

It was a very exciting day for the Coonabarabran Open Girls’ Softball Team making the Grand Final of the North West Knock Out competition for the first time in years (if ever). The Gala Day was held in Narrabri with teams competing from Tamworth High, Narrabri High and Peel High. The girls played with elegance, beautiful sportsmanship and Coona pride. Their first game against Narrabri saw some fantastic pitching, double plays, energetic base running and many safe hits from all of the girls. The Coona team continued their batting spree in the Grand Final against Peel’s North West representative pitchers; their speed and accuracy wasn’t anywhere near enough to faze our girls. All of the Coona girls were amazing but a special mention is required to our own North West representatives, Maddie “home run special” Heywood and Hannah “Double Play” Meier and a big thank you to Mrs Ranken and Mrs Rice for all of their support on the day.
