WEST Coast Fever midcourter Jess Anstiss (21) has been named the Rebel Young Star of the Year, following another stellar season on and off the court.

The Maida Vale resident was selected by a panel of Suncorp Super Netball judges on the basis of her netball talents, sportsmanship and a connection to the community and charities.

Anstiss proved her versatility in 2018, playing in all three midcourt positions on her way to her maiden Australian Diamonds squad selection.

West Coast Fever Head Coach Stacey Marinkovich congratulated Anstiss on the award.

“Jess is highly skilled in attack and defence and excels due to her high coachability and fierce competitiveness of the game,” she said.

“She has proven time and time again she is able to support her team mates by playing her role, contributing in team meetings and continuing to give and receive feedback in every match.”
