The AFL Girls Program travelled to Queensland on their annual interstate tour.
The tour kicked of with us flying out on Sunday 2nd September and on the Monday we participated in a lightening premiership against 3 of Queensland’s best.
We finished on top of the ladder after the preliminary rounds. We then played Mountain Creek who won the QLD state title last week in the grand final and won 42 to 7.
Ellie Blackburn received the medal for player of the carnival and Cherie Tamanalevu was awarded the medal for best player in the final for Hallam.
Other players to feature throughout the day in the best players were Brittany Wood, Lauren Hutchinson, Ebony Hobson, Lauren Hojnacki & Kirsten McLeod.
On Tuesday we ran an AFL clinic for the grade 4 students at Mountain Creek state school.
The clinic involved our girls splitting the students into 4 groups as they rotated through skill drills in kicking, handballing, marking and ball skills. To conclude the session they were put into 2 teams and we played a game of Auskick with them.
On the Wednesday we went to dreamworld for the day and then returned home on the Thursday.
