THREE Bendigo South East College students have earned selection in the School Sport Victoria 15-years-and under girls football team.
The trio of Tara Slender (Year 9), Olivia Rasmussen (Year 10) and Octavia Di Donato (Year 8) will be part of the team that contests the School Sport Australia Football Championship in Adelaide from July 21 to 28.
The three are part of BSE’s Athlete Develpment Program where they are coached by Danny O’Bree.
“Tara is a tall and aggressive ruck and key position player who has represented the Bendigo Pioneers as a bottom ager,” O’Bree said this week.
“Olivia is an inside midfieler, who despite her size is very classy and tough and co-captain of her Golden Square team.
“And Octativa is a classy hybrid footballer who can play anywhere. She has a great skill-set and goal sense too and is a bottom-ager for the national competition.”
