Year 10 student Samantha Ruhle plays Saturday Netball with our local Tibro’s Netball Association and is in her third year of being selected to play representative netball with Caloundra Netball Association.
Samantha played in the Under 15s rep team that went to Ipswich for the State Competition in June and was also in the Under 16s team that travelled to Townsville in July for Sunshine Carnival. The Under 16s Caloundra Rep team played really well and finished in third place in the State Carnival after a count back. Both competitions were played against other teams from all around Queensland.
Samantha was also selected to play in the Caloundra Under 16 Premier League team, which plays every Friday night at the Queensland State Netball Centre in Mt Gravatt. The team have finished on top of the ladder and won their semi-final last Friday night so will head to the grand final on the 20 September. Samantha trains really hard to gain selection into these teams and she appreciates the commitment of her family transporting and supporting her in all she does.
