Four receive honour

Meet the South West Academy of Sport athletes who are rocketing up netball’s ladder.

Ella Taylor, Giselle Taylor, Jessica Repacholi and Riley Culnane have taken an exciting step forward together on their netball journeys by being offered scholarships with the Western Australian Institute of Sport.

The teenagers, who play for the ECU Souwest Jets, will now benefit from having access to world-class facilities and support services through their WAIS scholarships.

The aim of the program is to support the development of West Australian netballers who are considered capable of progressing to the highest representative levels of their sport.

SWAS netball head coach Dale Nielsen congratulated the athletes on their latest achievement, saying their commitment and hard work has been awarded.

“We wish you all the best on this next step in your journey through the state and national netball pathway,” she said.

SWAS runs high performance programs for Australian Rules football, hockey and netball, as well as a golf squad and an individual athlete support program.
