EDENSOR Park's Chloe Saville
will compete with some of the best netballers in NSW at the national netball championships in
Canberra next month.
The 15-year-old Westfields Sports High School
student discovered her talent when her next door neighbour asked her to
join Penrith District Netball Association when she was just eight years old.
Seven year later she achieved her short-
term goal of making the state team.
She said she was looking forward to competing against the best.
"I went to the New South Wales Combined High Schools netball trials and was one of 12 girls selected to compete at another
netball championship at Narrabeen later this year," she said.
"I then went to the NSW All Schools netball trials in Parramatta and was selected to represent NSW. I was very shocked and
overwhelmed but excited at the time," Saville Said.
The goal shooter, one of this week's Fairfiekd Advance
Junior Sports Star Award nominees, sais she enjoyed playing
netball because it was a rewarding sport.
"I love playing. It feels really gioiod when you shoot and don't miss," she said.
Chloe Saville is a talented netballer
"I also like playing in a team and helping the other players on the court."
She is training five times a week in the lead-up to the national championships in the hope of doing well for her team.
She said she wants a career in netball playing for the NSW Swifts alongside captain Catherine Cox. "That would be awsome,"
