England U16 Women finished 10th at the 2016 European Championship, Division B.
It proved to be the perfect start for England who won their first 3 group games against Bulgaria (83-45), Bosnia and Herzegovina (66-56) and Scotland (75-46) before losses to Finland (52-63) and Ireland (46-52) saw the team narrowly miss out on a top 8 spot.
Wins against MKD (64-56) and Estonia (70-62) gave England the opportunity to play Belgium for 9th place. It was Belgium, however, that would take the spot (34-76) moving England in to 10th position.
Holly Winterburn led the team in scoring with 13.4 points per game, ahead of Hannah Jump at 10.5 PPG.
