Netballers named in NZ and Aotearoa Secondary Schools

Kim Howard —

Premier Netballers Kaiya Kepa, Liza Ball, Marewa Samson and Arikinoa Shortland were named in the National Secondary Schools Netball Squads.

After attending trial camps during the year, as well as Under 18 Netball Nationals, the NZSS Squad of 24 was named and it included three of our Premier athletes. Midcourter Kaiya Kepa and defender Liza Ball were named in the NZSS Squad, along with Marewa Samson who has been named as a reserve. 

The Aotearoa Secondary Schools also held trial camps through the year, and Premier shooter Arikinoa Shortland has been named in that team.

Both of these teams will meet in the Trans-Tasman Secondary School Tournament later this year. 

Well done girls! We are very proud of you!
