Premier joins crowd in con­grat­u­lat­ing net­ballers

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

THE Aus­tralian Di­a­monds Net­ball World Cup team’s achieve­ments will be cel­e­brated when Premier Mike Baird hosts a vic­tory cer­e­mony in Martin Place to­day.

The cer­e­mony will com­mem­o­rate the three con-- sec­u­tive World Cups the team has won.

Mid­courter Paige Hadley, of St Clair, said she was look­ing for­ward to the cer­e­mony.

“It’s re­ally ex­cit­ing that NSW is go­ing to put on a show for us and recog­nise the ex­cel­lence we’ve shown,” Hadley said.

“It’s well-de­served. I def­i­nitely think it’s about time we got some recog­ni­tion.”

The re­cep­tion will run from 1-1.30pm and in­clude speeches from Mr Baird, Sports Min­is­ter Stu­art Ayres, coach Lisa Alexan­der and cap­tain Laura Geitz.

The cer­e­mony will take place on the eve of the team an­nounce­ment for the Con­stel­la­tion Cup which will see the Di­a­monds take on their arch ri­vals, the New Zealand Ferns, in Oc­to­ber.
