As we continue to countdown towards to start of the 2013 World Youth Netball Championships later this week, we take a look at the NSW athletes that will represent the Green & Gold during the tournament.
After featuring 2014 NSW Swift Gretel Tippett’s interview with Netball Australia earlier this week, today we shine a spotlight on another Australian 21/U shooter; NSW junior Kristina Brice.
The tallest member of the World Youth Cup team, Brice stands at 196cm and can be quite the handful for even the best defenders. However the NSW 21/U representative says it’s the unknown that can be the most imposing.
“It will be good to just get out there and have a run against the other teams, finding out how they play and what we need to do to adjust our game to play against them more efficiently,” Brice said.
