Crystal Summers is among a host of the region's prospects who have made the GWV Rebels' 2021 NAB League girl's squad.
The Stawell junior joins Jorja Jones (Harrow-Balmoral), Ella Caris and Ella Friend (Horsham Saints), Steph Glover (Dimboola and Horsham Demons), who all made the cut.

Friend, Glover and Summers return to the Rebels' set-up, while Jones and Caris join the squad for the first time.
The Rebels' 36-player squad mostly features player from last year's cohort, who had their season cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
David Loader will lead the side, having taken on the role as head coach of the Rebels' boy's and girl's program late last year.
"I'm really excited to see how our girls develop throughout the 2021 NAB League season. The level of improvement already during the short period we have been training has impressed myself and our other coaching staff," he said.
The squad has trained under match conditions in recent weeks and participated in the NAB League girl's testing day last weekend.
The Rebels open their season this Sunday morning on the road to the Geelong Falcons.
