Net­baller se­lected for Cen­tral

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

Porirua net­baller Whit­ney Souness will be a key mem­ber of the Cen­tral Zone un­der- 23 squad, named last week.

Souness was in the Pulse squad for the ANZ Cham­pi­onship, and got a small amount of game time.

The 19-year-old mid­courter is seen by Cen­tral Zone coach Yvette McCaus­land-Durie as a vi­tal part of her side, which has a bal­ance of youth and ex­pe­ri­ence.

The 12-strong squad will have sev­eral train­ing ses­sions and warm-up games be­fore they take on the coun­try’s best in Auck­land from July 6 till 8.

Mean­while, Aotea Col­lege golfer Daniel Hil­lier was recog­nised for his na­tional am­a­teur ti­tle in April – the youngest ever, at 16, to win the crown – by be­ing named emerg­ing sports­man of the year at the Welling­ton Sportsper­son of the Year Awards last week. It was a dou­ble win in the emerg­ing cat­e­gory for golf, be­cause fel­low Manor Park player Ju­lianne Al­varez won emerg­ing sportswoman ti­tle.

Whit­ney Souness will play for Cen­tral Zone’s un­der-23 side.
