Southern Fusion wins again

BASED in Meeniyan, South Gippsland’s representative netball club Southern Fusion is celebrating another premiership after winning in Waverly last Wednesday.
The club’s 17 and Under team ones won at the Waverly Netball Centre in Section 2 of the 17 and Under premier division.
Coach Ben Dixon said it was a very close, hard-fought game, with the lead changing several times and at one stage in the third quarter Southern Fusion trailed by seven.
“Persistence, effort, and a never say die attitude saw the girls hit the lead to hold on with only  a couple of minutes to go,” he said.
“Key defender Jayde McGlead was awarded best on court honours by the umpires, and the team celebrated with dinner after the game.”
Next season, commencing later in July, the team will be promoted to section one.
“This will be a big step up, but the girls are looking forward to the challenge,” Mr Dixon said.
The same team has also recently returned from a fantastic weekend competing in the New South Wales state championships in Sydney.
“This opportunity was unique to Southern Fusion and one the girls enjoyed immensely and will remember for life,” Mr Dixon said.
“Although the standard was incredibly high, the girls managed to win four games and drew once. It was a wonderful learning and bonding experience and no doubt set the girls up to win last week.”
The Southern Fusion 15 and Under ones team is travelling to Queensland for a similar experience later this month.
This year, Southern Fusion has seven teams spread across three junior age groups, providing the opportunity for over 60 local girls to play netball at their optimum level and reach their potential.
It is also a terrific avenue for coaches wanting to move up to the next level.
Try outs for next year’s teams have been scheduled for October/November. All keen netballers are welcome and invited to attend; please visit Southern Fusion Netball Club on Facebook for details.
