Very Stormy month builds with three wins in four games
By David Turner - Monash Leader FOR a team that had earmarked 2017 as the first step on a long path back to the top, Monash University Storm is looking a little more like a contender than a renovator. On Wednesday night, the Storm hammered cellardwellers Ariels 59-36 at the State Netball Hockey Centre to make it three wins in the past four matches. And that lone defeat was an encouraging performance against finals candidate City West Falcons. It’s been quite a month and the Storm (3-4) now...

Monash 19/U primed for big 2017
History suggests that some of the most successful teams in the Victorian Netball League’s 19/U division are those that are able to keep a core group of players together for multiple seasons.   So expectations are high for Monash University Storm’s young group of 19/U stars, which will hit the court in 2017 with most of last year’s line-up intact.   Eight players from last year’s team will link up again this season, with a number of new additions providing depth and strength to an alre...
