Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

District net­ballers Paige Nash and Sophie Lostroh re­cently com­peted at the NSW State Age Cham­pi­onships in Syd­ney.

The girls, who are in Year 9 at Fin­ley High School, were mem­bers of the Barel­lan & District Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion, which draws play­ers from Grif­fith and the sur­round­ing districts.

The state car­ni­val was held over three days and the girls played 18 games of two 12-minute halves.

At the end of the three days, Barel­lan had had won 14, drew one and lost three. This placed the girls third in their di­vi­sion, an out­stand­ing achieve­ment.

Nash plays net­ball for Jer­ilderie and Lostroh plays for Blighty, and both girls agreed the cham­pi­onships were fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence.
