Box Hill had some good results on Saturday. Our women’s teams (division 1, over 40, under 18 and under 16) are all now on top of the ladder in their respective divisions. Our men’s division 1 team had a very narrow win to move to within 1 point of the top fo the ladder and our over 40 team is in first position. The competition in the men’s under 18 and under 16 divisions is very tough and our teams have dropped to 3rd and 4th places on the ladder. We need more under 18 and under 16 boys competing to make sure that we get all teams through to the finals at the end of the season.
