Congratulations to Laura Barden on being named in the 2015 Australian Women's Development Squad.
The National Development Squad includes nine athletes that were members of the National Junior Squad in 2014, two who were part of the senior squad and four who are new to the program. The new faces are Stephanie Kershaw (QLD), Savannah Fitzpatrick (QLD/NSW), Kate Hanna (NSW) and Renee Taylor (QLD).
Outlining his hopes for the development squad this year, Australian Women’s National Coach Adam Commens said, said, “It’s important over the next 12 months that we have meaningful opportunities for the development squad. That means giving them the exposure to our training environment and international competition where we can.
