2014 Australian Beach Handball Championships
The Australian Beach Handball Championships was held in Scarborough (WA) from Feb 13 - Feb 16 2014.
South Australia sent a Women's Team and Men's Team to represent their State in the National Competition.
SA WOMEN' S TEAM - SA SHARKNADOS
Siân Beavers, Cate Dayman, Manon Vernay, Marie Lampe, Linda Schöttler, Stine Strand, Carly Coleman, Leah Cece, Birte (Bibi) Biehler
The SA Sharknados fought hard over the 4 day competition and put themselves into the Bronze medal match against the WA Foxes, but sadly lost the match and landed themselves in 4th place. This is a great achievment for the team and State, but they were also very proud in being the only team to have beaten the Gold Medal winners, NSW Tang, for the whole 4 day competition. Congratulations girls!!
SA MENS TEAM - SA BOYS
Julian Junack, Lucas Turecek, Sven Schneider, Sam Whiton, Alex Radak, Martin Mielczarek, Daniele Tosato, Rahul Chawla
The SA Boys did it tough in the first 2 days of the competition with only half the team in Perth. But once they had their full team, they played hard and took most of the games to a penalty shoot out, which landed them in place for the 5th/6th match. They battled it out with the Melbourne Knicks, but lost to them in the shoot out and placed 6th position over all for the competition. Well done boys.
Handball SA is very proud of their teams achievements, and as a State, we are improving each and every year in the national competitions. We are very excited to see what we can do at next years nationals, playing on home sand at Glenelg in February 2015!!
