We spoke to Alex to find out more about her fantastic achievement.

How do you feel about winning players player of the year?

I am ecstatic about winning players player of the year for Perth ladies league! This was my third year in this league and it has been the best season for me so far.

What have been the highlights for you over the last year?

There have been many highlights for me this year. One of them includes being accepted into Edinburgh Accies U19 training programme with previous head Scotland coach, Mary Ann Cosgrove. This was an amazing experience with late night intense training sessions every Monday at the Oriam, Heriott Watt University. Another highlight includes the school senior team reaching Scottish cup finals. After the semi finals, all of us were so excited to play in the final. However, due to Covid-19, it was cancelled. Fingers crossed it can be rearranged!

How has Kilgraston supported you in your Netball success?

Kilgraston has been a major support system for my journey with netball on and off the court. If I had any free time, you would usually find me shooting in the sports hall, doing a session in the gym or talking about game plans with Mrs Ferry. The encouragement from the sports department has been incredible. They have encouraged me to go for every opportunity and be at the top of my game. Also, the support from students and teachers towards the senior netball team have been amazing. By having them watch and cheer us on in our home fixtures has really helped us boost our confidence this season.
