Hard work and a change of positions paying off for Vika Koloto

College Sport Media:

At the end of last year, Vika Koloto found a new home on the netball court.

“I only recently switched from goal shoot to goal attack, “she says. “Late last year the main goal attack in our school team got injured and I had to step up into that position.”

“It’s really fun, I love it. I found I like the extra movement and space and feeding goal shoots. I found I got a lot more fitter and everything was perfect for me when I switched positions.”

Last month the Baradene College year 12 player was selected in the NZSS netball team that plays in Canberra from 1-5 October against the Australian U17 squad and an England U17 side.

This will be the first time she has represented a New Zealand team and it is believed that she is Baradene College’s first NZSS netball representative.
