Barr off to Australian netball championships
HEYWOOD netballer Tyleah Barr is venturing to Darwin to take part in the 12 years-and-under School Sports Australia Netball Championships as part of the Budgies Indigenous Netball team.
The championship runs from September 16-21 with eight teams from each Australian state except Tasmania competing, plus the Budgies team.
Barr has shown outstanding netball talent over the past few years playing with her home club Heywood in their under-13 side.
Barr took out this year’s South West District Netball League under-13 best and fairest with the upcoming experience providing plenty of opportunity to showcase her skill.
The selection process for the tournament took place in January where Barr had to compete in the Australian Indigenous Budgies school girls netball competition on the Gold Coast.
