She also competed in the U15 SSSSA state team and won bronze at the Pacific School Games, and also being selected into the U17 development squad. Rachel is “really excited for the opportunity to play with and against such high quality players whilst representing my state” and was completely in shock when she read the team list and saw her name was among the selected players. “I was just so happy to make the team, last year I made the Development Squad and so this year I really wanted to make the State Team. I put so much hard work on (League/ Reserves and with Judi) and off the court, and I was just so happy to see my hard work paying off.”
