Quartet set to take on state
DIMITY Brackin and Meg Eastwell are ready for their second netball carnival for Darling Downs in the Queensland Primary School Netball Championships on June 19-22 at Mt Gravatt.
The two were selected in the 12 years team after coaches Angela Washbourne and Bridget Wells took Southern Downs 11 and 12 years netball teams to trials at Nell Robinson Park in Toowoomba. Both teams trained for a month leading up to the Darling Downs trials.
Dimity and Meg competed in the Darling Downs 11 years team in a carnival at Caloundra last year.
The 2010 team should have an excellent combination, as eight of the nine players who competed last year are again in the team in the older age group.
Dimity, who attends St Mary’s School, plays goal attack or goal shooter, while Meg, a Yangan State School student, is centre or wing attack.
Both play club netball in Warwick at Barnes Park each Saturday.
St Mary’s students Sarah Ogden and Larissa Millard are in the 11 years Darling Downs team to play in the state carnival at Ipswich on July 11.
Sarah alternates from one end of the court to the other in her two favoured positions, goal attack and goal defence.
Larissa plays goal shooter or goal attack.
While the 11 years team is their first at regional level in netball, Larissa has twice represented Darling Downs in swimming. Sarah has previously made a regional team in athletics in the high jump.
In club netball, Sarah plays in Warwick and Sarah in Toowoomba junior club fixtures.
