Polocrosse star is WDN/WCU award winner

RYLE Waugh has won a monthly senior sports star award after an outstanding 2016 and receives $100 from the Warwick Credit Union for her win.

She played for the Queensland open women's team at the nationals in Albury where the Maroons narrowly missed the final.

Ryle then toured South Africa with the Australian under-21 team which won the international series 2-1.

The Cunningham player won three major awards, best No.1 player in the series, best horse and rider and best female player in South Africa.

Ryle previously played for Australia in a 4-0 U21 series win against Ireland in internationals at Cunningham and Warwick grounds.

After her strong performance in Africa, she was then called up in one of the two Australian open squad teams to play in a national inter-squad challenge at Morgan Park in August.

She has played since age nine and will concentrate next year on developing a new horse. Emarilla Obsession and Ryle won many awards together but the mare is now being used to breed future polocrosse horses. Ryle will be one of the monthly winners to be honoured at the awards dinner early in 2017.
