BENDIGO duo Kylie Campbell and Ashlea Rollason have both been selected in the Independence Australia All Abilities state team.
Both Campbell and Rollason attended the try-outs for the Victorian team at the State Netball and Hockey Centre earlier this year.
As part of the try-outs the netball players took part in ball handling and movement drills before competing in a match.
Ten players from across Victoria were selected in the state team which will be coached by Janet Parker.
“All 10 players are training hard, learning new skills and improving with every session,” Parker said.
Campbell, who can play as a defender or in the mid-court, has been playing netball for several years and is a member of the Access for All Abilities team in the Golden City Netball Association.
“I like to have the run of the court and I also like defence,” she said.
Rollason has also been involved with the Golden City Netball Association for the past four years.
Parker said Rollason liked to play in defence and could read the play well.
Both netballers have represented Bendigo at the Victorian State Titles.
In May the state team was presented with their Victorian uniforms and played during half-time of the ANZ Championship game between the Melbourne Vixens and the Sydney Swifts.
“This was a fantastic opportunity for this amazing team of athletes to showcase their abilities,” Parker said.
The Victorian state team will now contest the Marie Little OAM Shield on August 17. The competition will be held at the Waverley Netball Centre.
