THE Seymour Lions are proudly still roaring through the 2015 netball season, sitting pretty at the top of the food chain. After an undefeated nine rounds, this team isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.
Many coaches have already called Seymour the team to beat this year; a credit to how far they’ve come as a team in the last 12 months. So what’s changed?
The club does have a strength of youth on its side with team members, Amelia Brock, Rosie O’Sullivan, Casey Adamson and Sarah Szczykulski all being under 20, combine that with experienced players and a confident coach and you’ve got a proven recipe for success it would seem.
Lions Coach, Ash Chapman is said to be ‘delighted’ with the progress of his players, adding that they’re now believing in themselves and believing in the players around them.
But history warns not to take the lead advantage for granted as things can all to quicky turn around. This week is set to mark an interesting match where everything could change, as the Lions take on an also undefeated Echuca, only to be challenged by third-ranked Kyabram in the subsequent round.
