Congratulations Nell Brodie (Year 12), Ellen Gall (Year 10), Maddie Malone (Year 11), Taylah Newman (Year 12) and Abbey Webster (Year 12) on their selection to play for the Darling Downs Demons U17 team at the AFLQ State Championships in Brisbane next Thursday. The girls are set to play teams from Papua New Guinea, North Queensland and Capricornia.
For the past three months, the girls have been training twice a week with high-level Brisbane Lions Academy coaches and more recently Brisbane Lions QWAFL player Sam Virgo. The girls’ skill levels have shown great improvement with the help of these coaches along with AFLQ Darling Downs staff. Glennie staff member Mrs Lisa Cooper will be travelling with this team as manager. We wish Lisa and the girls best of luck in this carnival.
