Gayndah girl Chloe Spry makes it to top 30 named in ‘possibles and probables’ at State Netball Championships
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.

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.”
