Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith congratulated and presented Violet Wetsteyn with a NSW Government State Representative Award at the opening of the Blue Mountains Netball Associations Winter Comp at the Lapstone Netball Courts on Saturday 22nd March 2014.
Violet started playing netball at 8 years of age and at just 12 years old represented NSW at the National Netball Carnival.
Violet was nominated for this prestigious award not only for her dedication to her chosen sport but also for her diversity in playing in both defence and shooting positions.
“Violet’s commitment to netball is evident in earning this award. The determination and effort she has given serves as an example and inspiration to others.” said Stuart Ayres.
The NSW Government State Representative Award recognises people who have represented the State of NSW in a competitive field.
Nominees of any age, who have represented NSW in a competitive field (eg. sport, music, the arts or academic), either nationally or internationally, may be nominated for the Award.
