Congratultions Jody

Posted on

Our Track and Field athletes got to know Jody Brownley last June in Darwin when she competed for the MAWA team, joining with Cathy MCloskey, Lisa Limonas and Sharon Davis in setting a  4×400 W40 State Record.

Jody has just been awarded a Goldfields Sports Star award in the Masters category.

With Jody living in Kalgoorlie we don’t see her very often, but she has promised to come to MAWA events whenever she is in Perth.
