Talitha backs up for Queensland

WARWICK State High School student Talitha Doro has made a Queensland football team for a second successive year.

The 14-year-old from Wheatvale will play for the state under-15 side in the nationals in Coffs Harbour from July 9-13.

Last year she played for a Queensland team that finished top of its pool in the nationals in Coffs Harbour.

Doro, a centre midfielder or left wing, is in the Queensland team playing in pool A this year.

"I didn't expect to make it this year as so many good players turned up for the trials," Doro said.

"I am so happy to be in the team."

For the next six weeks, she will travel to training each week at Mt Gravatt.

Doro is in the South West team which plays weekly in a junior competition involving teams from Ballina to the Sunshine Coast and west to the South West region.
