CHARLOTTE Jasprizza is hoping to win a second Australasian Catholic Netball Association championship this year.
Last year she helped NSW Combined Catholic Colleges to claim the under 15s title.
This year the 15-year-old will be hoping to push the open NSW CCC team to victory.
The James Sheahan Catholic High School student was selected in the open side last month after a day of trials.
Being in the bottom age group, the centre-court player hadn’t expected to earn a place in the open side.
“A couple of friends and I from last year’s (under 15s NSW CCC) team went and we didn’t expect to get in. We all got in,” Jasprizza smiled.
She admitted to being shocked when she was named in the 10-player team.
At the trials, a number of games were played in the morning before the players were culled from around 70 to 30.
These 30 then played as possibles and probables in the afternoon before the final team was selected.
JSCHS teacher Kylie Jordan, who was a selector at the trials, said Jasprizza earned her place in the open team.
“Charlotte was an easy selection. She was definitely a standout in the trials,” Jordan said.
Jasprizza’s selection will ensure she has a busy winter.
The NSW CCC team is expected to train weekly for about two months before they play the NSW All Schools Challenge against NSW Combined High Schools and NSW Combined Independent Schools on September 16.
The following week Jasprizza and NSW CCC will contest the Australasian Catholic Netball Association Championships in Adelaide.
NSW CCC won the under 15s and open titles in 2011 and Jasprizza is hoping to celebrate a win with the open team this year.
After the 2011 championships, Jasprizza was named in the Australasian under 16s merit team.
