Stories Pages 54-55 FAB FOUR EYE GRAND GLORY FOOTBALL WIN A FREE TICKET TO RED CENTRENATS >> PAGE 50 Gabby grabs great opportunity YOUNG Centralian netballer Gabby Coffey has received praise from experience mentor Julie Hoornweg after her performance for the SIS/SAS team in Canberra. Former Vixens coach and newly appointed Auckland coach for the new New Zealand ANZ franchise Hoornweg was coaching the team at the 20/U International Tournament. She loves a challenge and is a great learner, Hoornweg said. She coped very well with the pressures out on the netball court. Gabby had some tall athletes that she had to deal with, in Emma Ryde and Jane Cook, and was playing against some of the players who played this year in the Australian Netball League and ANZ Championship. Some of our SIS/SAS athletes, including Gabby, dont often get the opportunity to play against athletes at that international standard. They all stood up really well. Its about creating opportunities for these young, up and coming athletes. If you give them an opportunity to perform at the next level, they can cope with excellence.
