Southern Hills students Jorja Charles and Irwin Murphy spent a week of their holiday taking part in the Australian junior Floorball Open in Packenham, Victoria. As members of the Redbacks Floorball Club, they represented Western Australia in a very exciting competition against well-established large experienced teams from around Australia.
The Redbacks played with heart and passion and never gave up in some tough games and can be very proud of their efforts. Although they did not win the trophy, Irwin scored an awesome goal in the semi-finals and we celebrated with passion. Jorja has been scouted by the U19 Australian woman’s team. The scout couldn’t believe she is not yet 14 years old and has to wait until next year before they can get her! As Floorball is going to become an Olympic sport, this could be a very exciting future.
