Marie Skelton in AVL Finals in Melbourne

It’s not too often that we get to brag about Freezone’s Representational accolades but in the closing series of the AVL Women’s Finals in Melbourne last weekend, Freezone’s own Marie Skelton featured in the team from UTSSU representing NSW in the AVL taking on the University Blues from Victoria in the series final on Sunday.  Since returning to Australia from the States, Marie has been active across the volleyball scene in Sydney and has been a face around Freezone, playing mainly with the Studs on Thursday nights but also with the Pistons at away and State Tournaments regularly.  Marie has a healthy 21 years of volleyball experience behind her having played AA level in the United States in her prime and has been a sought after coach and trainer at University level both here in Australia and in the United States.  UTSSU went down to the Blues in a thrilling 5 set final on Sunday afternoon after having been up 2 – 0 in the opening of the final.  Backing up a 5 set game on the previous semi final the day before is always tough at this level and the team did suffer an injury or two in teh opening stages of the final and that proved a tipping point for the team, going down 10/15 in the 5th set.  Its an amazing feat by Marie to be still playing at this level and being so competitive and Freezone is very proud to have the club represented at such a high level of volleyball.  Congratulations Marie and well done UTSSU for a brilliant AVL 2015.
