National honour for New Norfolk netballer

CONGRATULATIONS to Year 12 Claremont College student Ashleigh Sullivan who recently learned that she had been selected in the Australian open women’s netball team to play in Hawaii in 2009.

Ashleigh, from New Norfolk, represented Tasmania in the Under 21 nationals in Townsville recently, where they won the grand final. In addition to winning that final, Ashleigh found out about her national selection and is the only Tasmanian person included.

Ashleigh says netball has always been a major part of her life and she has played club games with AYC and State League n the Under 19s. Her mother has been a major influence in her sporting career, having also represented Australia.

Currently working hard to complete her Year 12 studies and exams, Ashleigh aims to join the Tasmania Police service.
