Women's sport takes centre stage
The Adelaide University Football Club established the University’s first women’s team in 2013, and the club fielded three teams in the 2017 SA Women’s Football League. They won the division two grand final in 2015.
Courtney Thomas, 23, discovered the University had a women’s football team while studying honours in psychology.
In no time she was hooked and her strong defensive skills saw her drafted into the West Adelaide team competing in the new SANFL women’s competition.
“I’m just really grateful that the University was so supportive and kept pushing me,” says Courtney. “It was the club that nominated me to try out for the SANFL competition because I never realised it was an option.”
