Students do school proud

STUDENTS from Lockyer District State High did their school proud over the weekend competing against strong competition from all over Queensland in the school state championship for netball and squash.

Jaclyn Weatherby and Jaclyn Howe competed in the Darling Downs representative team for squash in Maryborough while Tamara Miller and Lacee Buzza travelled to the State Netball Centre in Mt Gravatt to take on the states best in netball.

Jaclyn Weatherby, 15, finished 12th in the state for under-15 girls school squash and said the competition was challenging.

“If I did it again I reckon I could have done better because I'd be more relaxed,” she said.

“We were sort of in pools so I was up against sort of the middle range players and so it was pretty tough, the competition of the first pool was really good.”

Tamara Miller and Lacee Buzza fought their way through competition to finish 7th for netball.

The team was unlucky to go any further in the competition having lost to 2nd and 3rd placed teams in earlier matches by only one point.

They said the competition was enjoyable and playing against other schools in the region offered good experience.
