Egypt Simpson, a local Yarloopian, has been chosen to represent the Southwest region of Western Australia on a trip to Melbourne to participate in the Basketball WA Southern Cross Challenge.

Egypt was selected in the Southwest Country under 14 women's tryouts alongside 9 others. The challenge is a great opportunity for junior athletes to gain experience in high level tournament play, which can potentially prepare them for involvement in state teams. Egypt is the only Harvey Shire resident in her age group who was selected and thanks to the support of many local businesses and organisations, she can now make the trip.


The Yarloop Hotel, The Loop Social Club, IGA Partons, Kambos Harvey, LP & JA Fryers, Hobsons Furniture Store, Uptons, Harvey Home Timber and Hardware, the Waroona Basketball Association and to all the local residents who have generously donated to support Egypt.

Harvey Primary School have generously offered to cover the remaining cost of the trip and have held a few events to raise the money.

Egypt's mother, Sunshine Paewai also held a raffle for various items that were donated; see below for the list of winners. Congratulations!
