Ballarat Clarendon College’s Sacha McDonald and Ally O’Connorwere included in the Victorian 17/under state team squad of 12, which will travel over to Perth for the tournament in April.

McDonald revealed that the duohad endured a nervous wait in the hours leading up to the announcement.

“They said they would put the teamup (on the Netball Victoria website)at 12, butthey didn’t put it up till three,” the talented goaliesaid.

“The whole day we were just like ‘come on, come on,’so it was a bit of a drain.”

O’Connor, who hasonly just made the move to BCC from South Warrnambool, saidit was a relief after having had some doubts about being selected.

“I knew Sacha would for sure though, I had so much confidence in her,” O’Connor said.

Both of the young stars have also been included in theSovereigns’19/under squad for the 2016 Victorian Netball League season.
