Kelsey Wakefield terrific in goals and Bronte Colenso dominant in attack. Congrats to Megan Chaffin and Okkie Bellekens who both made their NWPL debuts in the winning effort.

The men had two tight encounters but managed the to pull ahead in the final quarters in both matches.

Club adds a new Life Member: Nat Pavanello

Congratulations to Natalie Pavanello in achieving Brisbane Barracudas Life Membership. Nat has been an integral part of Barracudas Club for over 14 years as a player, coach and adminstrator. The presentation last week at the Barracudas National League home opener took Nat by surprise as the Junior and National League committees, Junior player representatives and Senior players came together at the to present her with the honour. "For once in my life I am speechless" said a very humble Nat who started her journey with Barracudas as an import in 2001. We are thankful for her continual presence on committees, her commitment to player development and her never ending energy to get things done since her retirement from playing and coaching. Well done Natalie! Your club is both proud and appreciative of your efforts on its behalf.
