Moreover, her association with the Uni Nationals has seen her act as the female squad’s team manager over the past three years, before taking the step up in 2018 to represent the University as Captain. Not only has she been a regular participant in the Games, but has also achieved considerable success, as reflected in her receipt of four Half Blues and the award for University Sport Team Manager of the Year in 2017. Ebru is thrilled to take on the challenge and hopes to help foster a culture of fun and success for Melbourne’s intervarsity representatives.’
