Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local -

KAYLIA Stan­ton will get one more tilt at an Aus­tralian un­der-21 ti­tle.

The 20-year-old West Coast Fever player has been se­lected in the na­tional squad that will play prac­tice matches against the Aus­tralian Di­a­monds and New Zealand Sil­ver Ferns ahead of the Net­ball World Cup in Syd­ney in Au­gust.

Stan­ton has played in the Aus­tralian un­der-21 side for the past four years.

“We had the Na­tion­als re­cently and it was a bit sad but it will be nice to fin­ish off with warm­ing up the World Cup teams,” she said.

“I’m ex­cited to play against the Di­a­monds and Sil­ver Ferns.”

The Wood­lands res­i­dent is the daugh­ter of Olympic high jump medal­list Christine Stan­ton.

“It’s great be­cause she gives me a lot of ad­vice and help,” Stan- ton said of her mother.

Stan­ton joins Tay­lah Davies from the NSW Swifts, Beryl Fri­day from the Queens­land Fire­birds, Cody Lange from the Ade­laide Thun­der­birds, Emily Man­nix, Alice Teague-Neeld, Liz Wat­son, Jo We­ston and Chloe Wat­son from the Mel­bourne Vix­ens, Kris­tiana Manu’a from the Magic and fel­low West Aus­tralian Numi Tu­paea in the squad of 22.
