New beginnings for WMP Sirens
WMP Sirens met Birmingham University for one of the first games of the season. The team only fielded 6 players and when the opposition arrived with a team of 12 players they anticipated a tiring game.
However the ladies set off with determination from the start and at the end of the first quarter were leading 17 points to 2. They continued to apply the pressure over the next three quarters with the final score being a jaw dropping 78 – 13.
Lucy Edgley played in her first league game for WMP Sirens and as a new player team manager Kim Humphreys asked her to write a few words about her experience to encourage other WMP family to join the team.
"Until a few months ago I knew nothing about basketball and now I'm playing in the West Midlands Women's Basketball League as part of WMP Sirens! The buzz of playing in a game alongside some amazing players is brilliant, winning with them is even better (78 to 13 this week!) and I'm proud to represent the Force. I'm still very much a learner however the others support and encourage me the whole time. Basketball is a great way to keep fit and you don't even have to be tall to play, I'm 5' 5''!
It's not a sport I would have previously thought about however now im playing I love it and I would encourage anyone to come and try it as I'm confident they would feel the same. As well as playing the league I'm also looking forward to next year's PSUK Tournament!"
Competition success for West Mids!
