Moama’s Bridgette Furphy made her long-awaited Victorian Netball League senior debut for the Yarra Valley Grammar Ariels.
After two seasons in the under 19 squad, the talented goal attack was elevated on the division one list.
The selection came after a big 2013 season in which the Ariel’s under 19 team made the grand final and on the back of winning Moama Netball Club’s A grade best and fairest award.
Damien Cocks represented Special Olympics Victoria at the South Australian Invitational Twenty20 tournament in Adelaide.
It was Cocks’ second consecutive state honour and he was the only regional member of the 11-man squad.
Victoria finished fourth at the tournament after playing a series of round-robin games against other states.
Cocks is also a keen member of Echuca Cricket Club’s D grade team.
