“I’m pretty excited about it,” she said.

Her selection in the NSW side followed an outstanding campaign with North West at the State PSSA carnival at Coffs Harbour. 

It was her second time playing for the zone team and she was surprised to hear her name read out. Especially after North West had finished in the bottom half of the teams.
