Last week it was announced that our very own Mrs Maree Wallace has been appointed to be a National Bench Official at the Netball NZ U/19 Tournament to be held in July in Invercargill. There are only 4 ladies appointed from the Netball Northern region.
Mrs Wallace has been benching for 3 years and over the last couple of months has been seen on TV officiating at the Northern Stars and Northern Mystics games. She has also done some of the Beko Netball league games which are the development tier for the regional teams and the Silver Ferns. Mrs Wallace now has the opportunity to apply for International games since attaining her National Bench Official accreditation last November.
This is a huge achievement for Mrs Wallace as sometimes it takes 3-5 years to get to this level. Great work and we are all very proud of her here at Pukekohe High School.
