EasiYo Tactix Secure Signature of Pedersen

EasiYo Tactix Secure Signature of Pedersen

Media Release
25 July 2014

EasiYo Tactix are pleased to announce the signing of exciting young midcourter Erikana Pedersen to the Mainland team for the 2015 ANZ Championship season.

The 19 year old (who turns 20 on Monday), has played two seasons with the Northern Mystics in 2013 and 2014. She has experience playing at national level for the New Zealand Secondary Schools and was a key member of the New Zealand U21 side which won gold at the World Youth Netball Championships last year.

Netball Mainland CEO Brigit Hearn says the signing of Pedersen to the team is yet another string to the bow for the EasiYo Tactix.

“Erikana is a sensational young player with a lot to offer in the midcourt and we are thrilled to welcome her to the EasiYo Tactix family.”

“She needs some court time to continue to grow her game and under the coaching of Sue Hawkins, we’re expecting her to thrive and take her game to the next level,” Hearn said.

The signing of Pedersen takes the EasiYo Tactix roster to ten with Anna Thompson, Mwai Kumwenda, Jess Moulds, Bailey Mes, Demelza Fellowes, Hayley Saunders, Nicola Mackle, Zoe Walker and Gemma Hazeldine already committing to the team for the 2015 season.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
