Hills College student Chloe Roberts has claimed a gold medal with her south coast under 11 representative netball team.
The team of 10 competed at the Sunshine Coast in the Queensland Championships.
The games were taken down to 15 minute halves in order to allow all teams to play every game.
The south coast side were undefeated throughout the carnival but only won by about six to eight goals in their short style games.
Roberts said being the number one team in Queensland was awesome.
“The part I really loved was the last game,” she said.
We had to win the last game to get the gold medal.
“We were down by 4 goals at half time, but we won the game by 4 goals.
“The whole team, the parents and coaches were over the moon when we won.”
Roberts enjoyed the team songs making new friends with her team mates.
“I felt really proud, excited and happy to be a part of the team,” she said.
Roberts worked on her defence throughout the carnival and felt she really improved in this area.
“I worked very hard to stick on my opponent every second of each game,” she said.
“We had really good players but we had to play as a team to win and get the best out of each other.
“Our coach really worked on that with us each session.”
Roberts is now preparing for October as she will be competing with Hills in the Samsung Cup.
Her club side, Mayfield Hawks, will play in the grand final qualifier this weekend.
