The OHA congratulates Serene Vudiniabola (2019) who is the round 3 VAFA Rising Star nominee. Serene is scoring on average more than a goal a game in the early part of her senior career.

Serene first played football in the same year that she completed year 12 in 2019. After being invited to train with the Dandenong Stingrays in the Covid interrupted season of 2020, she joined the Haileybury Hearts last year. Serene continues to develop her game through hard work and dedication to the sport. 
Serene was a clear best on ground last weekend as she took some strong marks and also kicked 2 goals. It’s nice to see her efforts being recognised by the VAFA and we have no doubt that as she gets more football experience that Serene’s game can progress to even greater heights.
Congratulations to Lucinda Rourke (OH 2021) on her selection in the Australian Junior Team for the World Athletics Under 20 Championships to be held in Cali, Columbia in August.
