Cass to play 200th game

WHITE Hills' A grade netballers will have an extra reason to perform well when they take to the court against North Bendigo on Saturday.

Star defender Janene Cass will play her 200th A grade game for the Demons.

When it comes to the Heathcote District Netball Association, Cass has done it all.

The goal defence has won seven A grade premierships with the Demons, won the HDNA A grade best and fairest in 2000 and was runner-up in 2009 and 2013.

Cass has won the club best and fairest award five times and she was made a life member of the club in 2011.

"(This milestone) just makes me feel old,'' Cass said.

"I've been fortunate to be involved with such a family-friendly club. Having three kids makes that family feel very important for me.

"I've been very lucky to play in a successful era for the club.

"I've played with a number of very good players who have stuck with the club for a long period of time. We've been able to keep the core group together."

While Cass is one of the premier defenders in the HDNA, her career with the Demons started at the other end of the court.

"My first game I was put in goals, but I never played there again,'' Cass said with a chuckle. "The game was against Broadford and I'm pretty sure their fans were cheering for me to get the ball."
