Cunnamulla Girls Netball Team – National Netball Carnival

Four of our girls have been selected for the Queensland Representative Team for 2015. They will travel to the Queensland Indigenous National Carnival to be held on the Gold Coast in January 2015.

Eleven girls participated in Toowoomba on the 17th October to play in the School Girls Indigenous Netball Trials. The four girls that were selected.

  • Tyanne Widgell 14 years
  • Marion Widgell 13 years
  • Jemma Thomas 12 years
  • Shyann Thomas 14 years.

The Girls are members of the Cunnamulla  Girls Netball team  who are trained under the Eagle EDGE Academy of Sport – coach Jane Dillon and Paroo Shire Youth Programs – coach Linda Wharton.  The girls have been training for the past two years, and when possible Linda and Jane take them away for competitions.

The girls’ training also includes playing with the ladies in the community. On a Monday night the girls enjoy their training, when they come up against, mothers, aunties and community members who are pleased to give of their time to help the girls train.   On a Wednesday and Friday morning at 6:30 the girls do water aerobics to build their body strength.  Well done girls on a huge job well done.
