In front of a large crowd and in a terrific promotion for female football, the grand finals were played as the curtain raiser to the Joondalup Falcons versus Swan Districts WAWFL matches.
Leith Mete, Sponsorship Manager with the Heart Foundation and competition patrons Alison Moore and Debbie White were on hand to present the Smarter than Smoking Schoolgirls Cup and medallions to the players, coaches and umpires.
Claire Kennedy (Corpus Christi), Mina Nguyen (John Septimus Roe), Mill Burns (St Stephen’s) and Bridget Sullivan (St Brigid’s) were awarded the match balls post game as recognition for being their schools best players in the grand final.
“The West Australian Football Commission greatly appreciates the support received from the Healthway for the sponsorship of the Smarter than Smoking Schoolgirls Cup," said WAFC Secondary Schools Manager Darren Davis.
"I would also like to sincerely thank those teachers who gave up their time to coach a school football team in the competition. As part of the WAFC’s continued efforts to promote female football, 2010 will see the inaugural Smarter than Smoking Schoolgirls Cup All Stars match played as the curtain raiser to the West Coast Eagles v Adelaide Crows game on Saturday July 10”
