Finally time to hang up their boots "

KELLYVILLE High School will bid farewell to its girls' futsal team in November when they graduate after six years of success.

Team captain Angela Mokhtar said she's lost count of the number of trophies the team has won since forming in 2006.

"We're all off to university next year so it's the end of an era," Angela said.

"I'll never forget my time with the team though and I think it's our strong bond which made us so successful."

Under the guidance of school team coach, Fabio Caprarelli, the girls have dominated their region and won state, national and Australasian titles during the past six years.

The team's success continued last month when the girls reclaimed their Northern NSW Champion of Champions crown in Port Macquarie.

Kellyville High started the tournament with a first game loss to McLean High School, but recovered to win their five remaining games and top the group with 15 points.

They now qualify for the Australasian championships in Beenleigh, Queensland.

Having won the Australasian Championships twice before Caprarelli has targeted a semi-finals finish or better.

"It's going to be very tough but I think the girls can win one last tournament before graduation," Caprarelli said.

"As a coach it's been a pleasure to work with the girls who have always trained hard."

Caprarelli expects to start a new junior boys' team at Kellyville High and is seeking players for a girls' team.
