Success from the 2018 Netball Program

Great article in Mildura Weekly on our two 2018 Netball Program athletes Mia Hollingworth and Abbey Clifford! The two girls were successful in trialing as athletes in the 2019 Northern Zone Talent program. This talent program is the next link in the Netball Victoria/Australia talent pathway – giving Mia and Abbey the opportunity to play and train in front of state selectors and coaches!
Well done and good luck Mia and Abbe
