Stella Tia Selected For 2022 New Zealand Secondary Schools A Team

After two years of Covid disruption, a New Zealand Secondary Schools (NZSS) netball team has been selected and we couldn't be more proud that a Waitākere College student, Stella Tia has been selected in the A team.

The 2022 NZSS team and an NZSS A Selection team were named after trials were held several weeks ago. The selection of the two teams was based on Coach and Emerging Talent Panel selector observations/rankings from NDC, U18, Regional Secondary Schools tournaments, and the recently-held NZSS champs.

In a special touch, Silver Fern Peta Toeava was on hand to chat with the girls while presenting their playing kits. Te Aroha Keenan (head coach) and Pelesa Semu (assistant coach) finally have an NZSS to work with after two Covid-impacted years. Jo Morrison and Michelle Parsons will oversee the NZSS A Selection team. The other two teams playing in the invitational quad are the Aotearoa Māori and Pacific Challenge Netball Teams.

Congratulations Stella!
