Congratulations must go to the Queensland Firebirds becoming the first team in the ANZ Championship to go through the entire season, including the Finals undefeated.
They brought their season to the perfect end when they defeated the Auckland-based Northern Mystics 57-44 at the weekend, their 15th straight win of the season. This result also eclipsed the previous biggest grand final winning margin set by Adelaide Thunderbirds last year, which was 10 points.
Coach Roselee Jencke has set the benchmark for her girls when she said “I Think it is easy to do it one time but it’s all about coming back and doing it again. That’s our next challenge.”
Having done something no other netball team has done she believes it will make the team hungrier for next season.
One thing is for sure they are bound to have raised the bar in the ANZ Championship and next season should be another great tournament.
