Picola and District Netball League’s junior representative teams have been bolstered by Deni Rovers players.
Sophie Beehag and sisters Ashleigh and Kelsey Geldenhuys are part of the league’s under-17s side, and young gun Lainey Blake is in the under-15s team.
So far the interleague teams have fared well at carnivals in Shepparton and Albury and have three more on the calendar before the season is out.
‘‘The girls had two weeks of selection trials and have been going really well,’’ Deni Rovers netball coordinator Tenille Blake said.
‘‘Out of the nine clubs there were 26 players trying out for the under-15s team and they selected 10.
‘‘Forty-two tried out for the under-17s.’’
Playing as GA, GS and WA, Lainey and her under-15 team won four of its seven games at Shepparton and seven of its eight games at Albury.
Picola’s under-17s side, which has also won games at both carnivals, features Ashleigh in GA and GS, and Kelsey switching from GS and GK, while Sophie plays in WA.
Sophie is part of the Rovers’ A grade side and the two tall sisters play for the club’s under-17s.
The remaining interleague carnivals will be played at Echuca, Bendigo and Kyabram.
