In all her games Ava Nicholson stood out even against the strong Sydney based Parramatta and Wollongong Girls sides and according to her Under 12 Rep Coach Lindsay Cosgrove Ava’s selection was well deserved and added to her winning the Rat Tweedie Medal for the best Player at the Under 12 Branch Championships played in Goulburn.
