Former Berrigan local and star netballer Emily Browne has risen up the ranks of the netball world.December 13, 2012 4:02am
Now playing for Lavington Panthers, Browne was recently selected to represent Victoria at the National carnival.
The 16 year-old has passed a series of gruelling training sessions to make the 12-person under-17 squad for the national titles to be held in Darwin next year.
Browne is hoping to play at centre, and although there will be other players with the same goal Browne knows versatility could be invaluable.
‘‘I am hoping that’s where I’ll stay but they also had me in wing attack and wing defence,’’ Browne said.
‘‘I was mostly playing centre (in the trials).’’
Her recent selection caps off an incredible season for the Murray High School Year 12 student, who became one of the youngest winners of the Toni Wilson Medal in September after winning the Ovens and Murray’s A-grade best-and-fairest award.
Making the state team was a big commitment for Browne.
On Sunday she travelled to Melbourne’s State Netball and Hockey Centre for the fifth week in a row.
‘‘The coaches there are amazing and what they’ve been teaching us really pays off,’’ Berrigan-raised Browne said.
‘‘It’s helped out my defensive game so much.
‘‘I know where I am going on the court now.’’
