Multi-talented Molly dedicated to national goal

At just 12 years of age, Molly Green already has fine sporting achievements under her belt.

Molly was a recent baton runner for the 2018 Commonwealth Games being awarded the role for her devotion to sport.

From high jump to running, the skillful junior has admirable sporting ability across many disciplines.

But it is Molly’s love for netball that inspires her the most.

She trains for seven hours each week.

Testament to her hard work, the St Mary’s College student has been selected to represent the Queensland under-12 indoor netball team.

Molly’s parents are very proud of her achievements, driving her to many training sessions across the Ipswich and Brisbane region several times a week.

“Molly is very committed to her sport and her hard work is paying off,” her father Mark said.

Molly will be competing in a national event on the Gold Coast from November 30-December 9.

At the completion of the event, an Australian team will be selected.

In addition to her under-12 state team selection, Molly also tried out for the new Junior Development Program competing in a Super League indoor netball competition.

This was formulated by the Indoor Netball Federation of Queensland.

Molly was delighted to be chosen in the A-Grade under-14 side.

“My dream is to represent Australia playing netball,” Molly said.

Judging by her work ethic and recent successes, Molly is a young person to watch in the sporting arena.
