Central and North Burnett Times - - BURNETT SPORT -

ALTHOUGH she plays goal de­fence, Gayn­dah net­ball player Chloe Spry is shoot­ing up in the sports world.

Chloe, 15, re­turned from Kin­garoy this week, where she played in the State Net­ball Cham­pi­onships with 120 other young hope­fuls.

Chloe said she was one of 30 girls named in the “pos­si­bles and prob­a­bles” group se­lected to trial for the Queens­land team.

“I just missed out on mak­ing the team but it’s a big com­pli­ment on how I play,” she said.

Chloe was the only player in the com­pe­ti­tion from Gayn­dah but said this pushed her harder.

“It was just great meet­ing and play­ing against other good play­ers,” she said.

On re­turn from the com­pe­ti­tion, Chloe said there was not any time for rest be­cause she was in train­ing for the next big game.

The young up-and-comer was also se­lected to play for the Thun­der­cats this year,

She said it was a huge step for her, but meant an even greater work load.

“We train ev­ery week­end in ei­ther Bundy or Her­vey Bay,” she said. “It’s re­ally in­tense.” Chloe’s first game with the Thun­der­cats will be in Toowoomba later this month.

“I’m pretty ner­vous about it be­cause I haven’t played my first proper game yet,” she said.

“But it’s com­ing up and I’m feel­ing pretty good about it.”
