This team like the U14’s and U16’s performed superbly well and also went undefeated during the season. They are a mixture of experienced players and younger girls from the U16’s.
Lailat Ponjee U18 Captain was fantastic throughout the season. A true leader who all the girls look up to. She is a fine all round player and has performed extremely well in every game this season. Lailat thoroughly deserved the Coaches Player Award with her leadership clearly evident in all matches.
The winner of the Most Improved Player award was awarded to Zindzi Alex-Eyitene. The improvement Zindzi has made this season has been unbelievable. She has improved in all areas of her game and is a fine, athletic player and an effective scorer. She is another great role model to not only the girls but every player at the club.
The MVP for the U18’s award went to Annabelle Parnell-Lea this season. Annabelle has a great Basketball brain and is brilliant at bringing other girls into the game with her clever play. She again led the totals for assists and also scored a high seasons points tally. She can also adapt to any game plan and can play any position as and when required. This is all the more impressive when you realise she is only 14 years of age. A very talented player indeed
All the girls in this team performed fantastically well throughout the season and although they are young we look forward to seeing them in National League next season.
Well done to all the Rockets Girls and huge congratulations to all the Coaches involved with the Girls Squads. Special mention goes to Head Coach Marcellus who has developed all the players this year working tirelessly with them. This dedication has seen them improve on all levels of their game and is just the platform we need for the season ahead.
We are also pleased to say we have several new players joining our ranks. The potential & in some cases, experience these new players will bring us is very encouraging. They will definitely strengthen our squads even further. Welcome to Rockets Girls
Exciting times ahead !!
