Cardiff netballer dedicated to three teams for 2014 season

ONE team is simply not enough for Cardiff netballer Brooke Fennings, who has just accepted a position on her third team for the season.

The 15-year-old goal shooter was selected for the NSW under-17s development team in January after three gruelling rounds of try-outs.

She was one of 12 girls in the state to be chosen from 150.

This season, Brooke will juggle three competitions at different representative levels.

It will be her second year with South Newcastle Leagues Netball Club on its A-grade 2HD team, which requires her to play on weekends.

The Cardiff High School student also competes in the All Schools competitions at state and national level.

Last year, she represented Newcastle in the under-15s Waratah Cup state league team, and she will play again with them this season.

Despite her packed schedule, Brooke said there was no other sport she would rather play.

"Once you get to the stage where you can play for rep teams you become pretty attached," she said.

Brooke, who has played netball since she was six, trains five days out of seven and her commitment to netball has shown in her recent achievements.

Last week she received a $500 scholarship from the Hunter Academy of Sport and was a finalist for the 2014 Lake Macquarie Junior Female Sportsperson of the Year award.

Brooke will travel to Melbourne next Saturday to compete with the NSW under-17s development team.

After the week-long competition, a team of 12 will be chosen to represent Australia at the nationals.
