SIX Echuca netballers have been selected into the North Central region teams to compete at the Netball Victoria State Titles on October 7-8.
Bridget Byrne has made the 17-and-under squad and was recently announced as co-captain alongside Sandhurst’s Sophie Shoebridge.
The 17-and-under side won the 2015 titles and will be looking to produce another successful year with a strong list of players.
Byrne was vice-captain of the 15-and-under side in 2016 which boasted five Echuca players and looked forward to her new role as co-captain. This year’s 15-and-under team coached by Echuca and District Netball Association’s Betty McCoomb also has five players from Echuca.
Chloe Stone, Hollie Davidson, Brielle O’Meara, Lara Judd and Corey Drennan were selected into the squad with Drennan also chosen as co-captain along with Sandhurst’s Piper Dunlop.
The 15-and-under side has been training at Flora Hill Indoor Sports Stadium at Bendigo as well as the courts at Echuca and District Netball Association ahead of the titles at Eagle Stadium in Werribee.
