Congrats to Steph and Alex - hopefully there's some SA boys coming through the ranks as well.

Madol Chol is the real deal! Will play NCAA div 1.

Great to see Neil Gliddon just churning out so many exciting new SA prospects for the national stage.

Congratulations to Abigail Wehrung on making it to the AIS - great kid who deserves it - the family are very nice - her dad would have been real proud - may he rest in peace.

You are on the money in many ways VP. Abigail W is a great kid. Yes, she has worked hard to get to where she is at the AIS and continues to do so. And yes, her Dad would be very, very proud of his daughter. No doubt Mum and her brothers are very proud of her too.

Both Frolings can go if you saw the Nationals, two completely different players and both can go. The so called lesser one was second top scorer.
