South Western Times - - Sport -

SOUWEST Jets duo Jes­sica Repa­choli and Alkira Rodney have been re­warded for out­stand­ing WA Net­ball League sea­sons by be­ing named in the in­au­gu­ral West Coast Fever Academy.

The pair were se­lected among nine other play­ers for the squad, which also re­ceives West Aus­tralian In­sti­tute of Sport (WAIS) schol­ar­ships.

Both Rodney and Repa­choli rep­re­sented the Jets as well as the State.

Repa­choli com­pleted her sea­son in grand fash­ion, win­ning the Most Valu­able Player award for Har­veyBrunswick-Leschenault in the South West Net­ball-Foot­ball League grand fi­nal.

West Coast Fever ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Ta­mara Shep­pard said the Academy would align with the State team and Aus­tralian Net­ball League pro­grams.

“The pro­gram aims to pro­vide a holis­tic ap­proach to the ath­letes in a high per­for­mance en­vi­ron­ment and op­por­tu­nity for player de­vel­op­ment,” Shep­pard said.

Har­vey-Brunswick-Leschenault cen­tre Jes­sica Repa­choli will get to de­velop her tal­ents at the in­au­gu­ral West Coast Fever Academy.
