COLBINABBIN premiership star Louise Dupuy will lead the North Central region open team into battle at next month’s Netball Victoria State Titles.
Dupuy, who was one of the keys for the Grasshoppers in their 2017 Heathcote District grand final win against White Hills, has been named captain of the 10-player squad for the October 7-8 titles.
The goal shooter has been in excellent touch in each of the past two seasons for Colbinabbin and was best on court in her side’s 2016 premiership win, the second of three straight flags for the Grasshoppers.
Eaglehawk’s Ashley Ryan is the vice-captain.
Kangaroo Flat’s Susan Borserio is the open team’s coach.
Meanwhile, Sandhurst’s Sophie Shoebridge and Echuca’s Bridget Byrne have been announced co-captains of the 17-and-under team to be coached by Janelle Hobbs.
Shoebridge was earlier this season voted best on court in the BFNL’s 17-and-under interleague win against Ballarat and last Saturday lined-up at goal defence in the Dragons’ A-reserve grand final against Kangaroo Flat.
Sandhurst’s Piper Dunlop and Echuca’s Corey Drennan are co-captains of the 15-and-under team.
The State Titles will be played at Eagle Stadium in Werribee.
