Making the grade
AN Aquinas duo will trade in their uniforms for state colours after both were chosen to represent WA in different sports in November.
TWO Aquinas College boys will swap their blazers for black and gold playing shirts after being selected to represent WA in basketball and touch football.
Jack Norrish will play for the 12 Boys Basketball team and Zac Richardson the 15 Boys Touch Football team. Both competitions will be held in Adelaide in November.
Zac, who is a member of the Southern Districts Touch Association, said the sport was in his blood.
“My family have been playing touch since before I was born, so I started by watching them and eventually started to play,” he said.
“I'm really excited because my mum, dad and brothers have all represented WA so it’s my turn now. I'm looking forward to being over there playing the game I love with my best mates and having a great time.
“I want to finish the competition a better player and get the best result for WA.”
