South Adelaide utility Gypsy Schirmer has displayed her impressive versatility at the South Australian AFLW Combine.

A member of the AFLW Academy, Schirmer was the fastest Croweater in the 20m Sprint, while also finishing inside the top three of the Agility Test, Standing Vertical Jump and Running Vertical Jump (Right Hand).

Sturt’s Zoe Prowse caught the eye with her natural leap, winning all three Vertical Jump tests while also placing third in the 2km Time Trial.

Norwood premiership veteran Leah Cutting showed off her aerobic capacity by winning the 2km Time Trial in 7.56 minutes, ahead of West Adelaide’s Zoe Venning in 8.31 minutes.

Panther Tahlita Buethke put her best foot forward in both running events, finishing second in the 20m Sprint and placing first in the Agility Test.

The AFLW Draft will be held on Tuesday July 27 from 6pm SA time.
