Sib­lings share the spotlight

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Front Page -

COMO sib­lings who are both stars on the lacrosse field re­cently played in the Se­nior Aus­tralian lacrosse cham­pi­onships.

IT may have been a case of sib­ling ri­valry at home for Como ath­letes Miles and Car­lyn Blair, but the pair say that for­tu­nately they have never had to face each other on the field.

The brother-and-sis­ter lacrosse fa­nat­ics both started at Phoenix Lacrosse Club in Hamil­ton Hill and they played in the Se­nior Aus­tralian Lacrosse Cham­pi­onships from June 4 to 7.

Miles moved to Mel­bourne this year to play in the state league for the Footscray Lacrosse Club and has been named in the Aus­tralian All Stars Team.

Car­lyn has been equally lucky, cho­sen to play in the West Aus­tralian Women’s team for the sec­ond time.

The pair di­vide their time be­tween a univer­sity work­load and their love of lacrosse, with 21-year-old Miles trav­el­ling be­tween WA and Vic­to­ria to fin­ish his fi­nance and eco­nom­ics de­gree at UWA.

Car­lyn is study­ing phys­io­ther­apy at Curtin Univer­sity and plays in the un­der-23 Aus­tralian squad which will play in the Asia Pa­cific Lacrosse Cham­pi­onships in Bangkok this month.

Brother and sis­ter Car­lyn and Miles Blair have kept their sib­ling ri­valry off the field.
