Swags gives team good en­ergy

Hills Gazette - - SPORT -

WEL­COME back to Lynx HQ for an­other up­date.

Af­ter get­ting the first win of the sea­son and go­ing down to the wire against the Mel­bourne Boomers, there was some con­fi­dence build­ing amongst the group.

This pos­i­tive vibe was some­what damp­ened early in the week when Court­ney Williams was ruled out for the game against Dan­de­nong with a shoul­der in­jury.

How­ever, this in­jury did pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity for one mem­ber of the team, Ali­son Sch­wag­meyer.

‘Swags’ is one of the hard­est work­ers in our group and has been the MVP in the SBL the last two years, play­ing as an im­port for the Lake­side Light­en­ing.

She has been train­ing with the team in the hope of gain­ing her Aus­tralian res­i­dency so she can be a per­ma­nent mem­ber of the squad.

Af­ter only find­ing out she was el­i­gi­ble to play the morn­ing of the game, ev­ery­one in the team was rapt for Swags.

The good en­ergy from the morn­ing car­ried over to the game against Dan­de­nong, with the team earn­ing a hard­fought 88-78 vic­tory.

The girls trailed by two at half-time but poured in 31 third-quar­ter points to take con­trol of the game.
