Victoria’s up and coming stars to represent state in National Netball Championships

Victoria’s best young netball talent has been selected for next year’s National Netball Championships, with the lists for the 17/U and 19/U state teams announced today.

Next year’s players come from all across Victoria, from Edenhope to Koonwarra, highlighting the quality of talent across the state.

The 17/U team features many fresh faces, with just three members of the 2018 team selected, and four moving up to the 19/U team.

Experience is evident in the 19/U team, keeping a core group from 2018’s winning side, including 2018 Victorian Fury players Allie Smith and Sacha McDonald.

The Victorian underage state teams are an important part of the Netball Victoria pathway, leading through to the Victorian Fury in the Deakin University Australian Netball League, and the Melbourne Vixens.

Current Samsung Australian Diamonds Liz Watson, Kate Moloney, Jo Weston, Emily Mannix, Kelsey Browne and Caitlin Thwaites have all worn the ‘Big V’ at the National Championships in their progression through the pathway.

The National Netball Championships will be held in Brisbane in April 2019. Stay tuned for more details about the National Netball Championships on the Victorian State Team page.
