VICTORIAN AND AUSTRALIAN PLAYERS

What a month for the club with so many players trying out for, and making state and national teams. Well done to all the Bergers who put themselves on show at the trials. I am sure you have learned a lot from the experience. And for those who have been selected, now the hard work begins at training:
Victoria Under 17 Girls – Lara Adam, Keely Knight, Presi Petkova and Caitlin Topping.
Victoria Under 17 Boys – Lorenzo Pope.
Victoria Under 19 Girls – Mikayla Adam, Brooke Freckleton and Ruby Valentine-Bell,.
Victoria Under 19 Boys – Mackenzie Lowe and Darcy Wischer.
And still in the squad for selection into the Victorian Under 15 teams are Lauren Cox, Keely LoPiccolo, Shante Pisani, Mikayla Plapp, Maya Secchi and Sasha Brooke.
Lara Adam, Caitlin Tipping, Darcey Wischer and Alek Ryan represented Australia in Thailand last month. Hannah Martin and Jaimee Lee Morrow will play in the Australian Senior Women’s team this month and Mikayla Adam and Brooke Freckleton will represent Australia later this year.
And good luck to Shannon Winzer (Head Coach) and Jenny Becker (2nd Assistant Coach) with the Volleyroos at the World Grand Prix in June.
