Holbrook’s Alyce Parker is one of five players from the local region to be selected in the AFL NSW/ACT Youth Girls state squad.
The 2017 Young Achiever of the Year nominee joins Albury quartet Brea Quinlivin, Mackenna Carroll, Melanie Wright and Ahlani Eddy in the 44-player squad to attend the upcoming Northern Academy Series in Coffs Harbour from April 21 to 23.
Players will be divided evenly into teams, named Giants and Swans, and will compete against teams from Queensland, representing the Suns and Lions.
The final AFL NSW/ACT Youth Girls State team will be selected following the series and will go on to represent the region in the National Championships to be held later in the year.
Rounds one and two of the championships will be played in Sydney from May 13 to 21, while rounds three and four will be staged on the Gold Coast from July 9 to 14.
Standout players will be in contention to be drafted by an AFLW club.
