EXPERIENCED Wimmera league shooter Sharon Fedke has been a welcome addition to the developing Horsham Saints as they eye off a finals berth in 2014.
After 10 years with Horsham United, Fedke has become an integral part of the Saints’ A Grade line-up and is also coaching the club’s second-placed 15 and under A side
The Saints goalie said she enjoyed life at Coughlin Park on and off the court.
“I’m absolutely loving it,” she said.
“They have been fantastic and welcomed me with open arms.”
Fedke converted 35 times in the Saints’ 29-goal win against Minyip-Murtoa at the weekend, which returned the side to the top five.
The Saints are edging closer to competing in their first A Grade finals series since 2009.
“This year has been a real positive step forward for the club,” Fedke said.
“There’s been a lot of new faces this year and we’ve got a mix of older heads and some younger ones.
“It’s a pretty young group with a lot of athletic girls and loads of potential.”
Fedke has played in all 13 matches this season – plus the Wimmera league’s open interleague victory – and is averaging 25 goals a game.
She said both she and the team still had plenty of room to improve.
“I’m never completely happy with how I play – I always feel like I can play better,” she said.
“Our goal is week-by-week focusing on getting the win, making finals and then giving it our all.
“We definitely have loads of ability within this team and we’re slowly starting to gel at the right time of the season.”
