Closer to reach­ing her goals

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

A GAYN­DAH girl is one step closer to achiev­ing her dream of be­com­ing a pro­fes­sional net­ball player.

Af­ter years of ded­i­ca­tion, Chloe Spry, 13, has been se­lected to join the Wide Bay Net­ball Acad­emy, a group that brings to­gether the re­gion’s most promis­ing net­ball play­ers.

The acad­emy was launched in Bund­aberg last Sun­day and mem­bers will par­tic­i­pate in net­ball camps with guest coaches to de­velop skills, strength and conditioning. Spry at­tended the first camp and will at­tend four more be­fore a clus­ter week­end in Bris­bane.

“It’s one step closer to my dream of one day play­ing for the Thun­dercats or for Queens­land,” Spry said.

“The acad­emy is hard work and I’m work­ing hard on my fit­ness.”

Spry said she loved be­ing a part of the acad­emy and en­joyed meet­ing so many girls from all over the re­gion.

Gayn­dah net­ball coach Chris Dun­can said the acad­emy launch was a chance to in­tro­duce all the girls who had been se­lected in the squad.
