State league proves timely

KEEN: The high standard of the Western Region State League suits returning Irrewarra-Beeac netballer Elissa Rodger.

The pre-season scheduling of the Western Region State League couldn’t suit returning netballer Elissa Rodger any better.
Rodger will return to the court for Irrewarra-Beeac in season 2011 as the netball juggernaut aims for a fifth consecutive crown.
But before that, she’ll feature for Colac District in the regional state league, a competition that serves as a perfect competitive hit out ahead of the Colac district netball season.
Like several of Colac district’s top-level netballers, Rodger has played in the Colac Night Netball Association at Eastern Reserve on Monday nights.
But come tomorrow night at a ringing Warrnambool Stadium, the intensity and standard will lift as six teams vie for the honour of being south-west Victoria’s best.
Coach Leah Ousey will take a versatile squad with a potent attacking end, which incidentally includes two players who have left the CDFLNA, Rachel Rodger and Errin Schaeffer.
Rodger said playing Monday night netball had made her keen for April to roll around for round one of the Colac district season.
But unlike her most recent season with the Bombers in 2008, the athletic attacker won’t be feeding the ball to Schaeffer, Rachel Rodger or South Colac-bound Emily Dooley, and could even return to the shooting circle where she played during the early 2000s.
Colac District kicks off its campaign against Warrnambool City Netball Association at 8.30pm tomorrow.
