Carnival success for Emerald netballers

THREE Emerald netballers proudly represented north Queensland at the National Indigenous Schoolgirls Titles on the Gold Coast, and came away highly successful.

Miesha Huet and Ieshia Fuller were teammates in the under-16 North Queensland Crocodiles while Tamera Hunter played for the U18 side.

Huet and Fuller's team was undefeated in their 12 matches.

"We won about eight and tied the rest of them," Fuller said.

This secured a fourth place finish for their team.

"It was my first time so I just found it really interesting and I want to go back again next year," Fuller said.

Huet went to the tournament last year as well.

"Knowing a lot of girls from last year, it was really good to see them all again," she said.

"Meeting new girls as well was really fun."

Fuller also said netball had been a great way of making friends for her since moving to Emerald.

"When I came up, I started playing netball because I knew all the girls and they all played netball," she said.
