Alysha issues shooter plea
ROCKHAMPTON'S Alysha Kuhl is sending out an SOS message to Central Queensland netballers.
Kuhl wants goal shooters to nominate for the Capricorn Red Claws open netball team to play in the Regional State League starting in Townsville next month.
The 19-year-old played circle defence and wing defence for the Red Claws last season, but could be forced into the shooting circle this year.
Kuhl has played as shooter in four games for her club team Runaways Diamonds in this year's Rockhampton Netball Association Senior A division.
"I'm desperate,'' said Kuhl, not wanting to shoot.
"I've played four club games, but that's with Erin (Currie) ? someone who can shoot.''
Last year's shooter Angela Horn, of Biloela, is unavailable due to North Queensland Steelcats commitments while Baralaba's Kate Bromley is another Steelcats regular.
The Red Claws team, coached by Rockhampton's Barb Ahmat, is expected to hit the court with a new look team this season with Kuhl one of the few returning players.
Red Claws open team nominations close on Monday. l Meanwhile, Kuhl and Rockhampton's Michelle Travers are playing with Beenleigh at the Queensland under-21 indoor netball trials in Brisbane this weekend.
Several Rockhampton players are also on court with a North Queensland open women's team.
