Georgia Dent - Netball
Georgia Dent is an optimistic and down to earth person, who never shies away from a challenge. As an athlete, Georgia thrives off of hard work and pushing herself and her teammates to their limits. As an 180cm midcourt player, Georgia is known for her dynamic and sharp movements off of a mark and her natural instinct in being able to read the play.
Over the past 4 years, Georgia has held a SASI netball scholarship and is currently in the U21 World Youth Cup squad, she has also been named as a 2021 pathway athlete with the Adelaide Thunderbirds. As a young athlete, Georgia has had to learn how to balance life with her sporting commitments and lives by the quote “if it was easy, everyone would be doing it”, driving her to be the best possible version of herself on and away from the court.
