Kasey Mornane and Meg Walker will represent Stawell in the Wimmera interleague team tomorrow.

Both Walker and Mornane will take to the court in the Wimmera colours for the first time.

Walker, who is in the under 17 team, is excited to have the opportunity to play with and against the best players from the two leagues.

"It is very exciting," Walker said.

"I'm excited, but at the same time I'm a little bit nervous."

This season has seen Walker play not only in the under 17s, but also in the A grade for Warriors which has seen her go from strength to strength.

"It (playing A grade) has definitely helped," Walker said.

"It has been really good. It's a completely different game in seniors. I've fit in well with the girls, they've been awesome."

Each player that has been selected was required to attend one training session a week.

The training sessions were based around skills and match play to help the players gel in a limited amount of time.

"The team is looking pretty strong," Walker said.

"We have a couple of different options for each position, so it will be interesting to see where we all play."

Walker, who is normally an in the ring defender at goal keeper or goal defence, has branched out to the mid court at times over the training period.

"I've never really played in the mid court, especially wing attack," Walker said.

"So it is a little bit strange, but I'm loving it."

Mornane will take the court before Walker in the under 13s where she will more than likely pull on either the goal shooter or goal attack bib.

It is a great achievement for the two girls to represent Stawell Warriors in the Wimmera team.

Mornane will start tomorrow mid morning in St Arnaud while Walker won't play until 12 noon.
