NSW netball selection for Cassie Skuthorpe

Rhonda Ashby with Cassy Skuthorpe

For 16 year old Cassie Skuthorpe being selected to a squad from which NSW team selections will be made for the State netball Team has been a milestone sporting achievement.

Competing in Newcastle at the weekend with local team mates, Alysia Bolton, Kerry Myers, Toni Skuthorpe, Tara Smith, Kieran Walford and Kimberley Woods, Cassie caught the attention of State Selector and Australian representative player, Sharon Finan. The future looks rosy for Cassie who will compete against the Queensland side in the New Year.

She is modest about her achievements, attributing much of her success to the coaching skills of Rhonda Ashby who has accompanied the local team on their away encounters. She also acknowledges the much appreciated funding from Murdi Paaki Regional Council, making it all happen.
