LOCAL journalist Natalie McGregor is excited to return to the sports desk at the Hamilton Spectator.
Having grown up in Penshurst, Natalie, 25, has always had a love of sport, playing netball, basketball and women’s cricket in local competitions.
“There wasn’t a sport I didn’t try at some stage I wouldn’t have thought. It ranged from ballet and gymnastics, to horse riding, to clay target shooting, to athletics and swimming and then the usual team sports … netball, basketball and cricket,” she said.
“I was lucky enough to grow up in a family that encouraged a love of sport, and was much supported to take it as far as I could.”
