Star netball player Lefébre Rademan reckons there is still more to come for her, despite already being recognized as one of the outstanding players in the Telkom Netball League for the 2019 term.

Rademan (22), was named as the best shooter of the competition in which she played for the Free State Crinums netball team. She got recognition for her 201 goals from 235 attempts (86% goal average), which was the second highest by any shooter with more than 100 attempts.

Rademan’s excellent performance includes winning four Player of the Match awards. This followed last year’s Varsity Netball Tournament where she also finished with the joint most awards for the best player in a fixture. Her superb form steered the Free State Crinums to third position in the league.

Rademan also had the privilege to captain the FS Crinums in the competition. She strongly maintained her sterling performance and captaining the FS Crinums in the competition inspired her to take her game to the next level. Rademan is a B.Ed. honours student at the University of the Free State.

“I would say this has been the best form of my career. But I believe I can take it a step further. Reaching this form is something that comes over time with hard work,” said Rademan.

Impressive about the South African A (2018) and SA u.21 (2016 and 2017) player is her ability to adapt and play a different position.

She has been rotated between wing attack and goal attack during matches. She started her career as a defender at school level, post-school she played as wing attack and now notable goal attack. Playing as goal attack she said was a position she always thought she would like.

“In my first year, I used to nag our coach (Burta de Kock) to give me some playing time there. It is funny how it worked out, as I’m now playing mostly goal attack,” she said.

Rademan still hopes to win a couple of trophies with the Kovsie and Free State teams. She aspires to make the Protea team.

According to De Kock, Rademan is a hard worker with a never-give-up approach.

“I can play her anywhere and she won’t let anyone down. Lefébre never takes praise for herself.

“She sets the example on and off court.”
