Young netballer takes on state’s best at championships

By Meg Saultry

Seymour's Chloe Locke did the region proud, representing the Goulburn Valley in the under-17 state netball championships at Kilsyth earlier this month.

The junior Goulburn Valley squad played 17 matches across the two-day championships, winning eight of its matches and drawing two.

The team was formed following trials across all local netball leagues in the greater Goulburn Valley region, with 18 regions competing from across the state.

In a Goulburn Valley squad of 11 players, with only three top-age players, the signs for 2020 look good with the majority of players eligible for next year's carnival.

Earlier, Goulburn Valley's under-15 team lost a thrilling final against Henderson, going down by a point.
