Kendell Ball is also only the second female to officiate league football in Australia.
According to the WAFL news story, she never consider it a problem.
ÂPeople have talked about it from the moment I started umpiring and I never saw it as an issue,Â she said. ÂObviously dad umpired a lot of footy and is still involved now, but I havenÂt felt any pressure to do anything differently. He was a field umpire, IÂm a goal umpire and IÂve just focused on doing my job well.Â
