THIRTY-FIVE netballers from St Mel’s Primary School were a little star-struck last week, after a visit from Melbourne Vixens champion, Emily Mannix.

Emily visited the school last week, holding a clinic for the young netballers aged between eight and 12.

St Mel’s Primary School netball club committee member, Erin McCarroll said, “Emily showed them drills, ball skills and some defensive drills for an hour and a half.

“Emily was then kind enough to answer questions from the girls and then personally sign a Melbourne Vixens poster for each girl. Emily also signed a netball that we will give away to a lucky player at our end-of-season function.”
