Kahli keen to stay in touch with state side

By TONY WHITE

SINCE first being selected in the Far North Coast girls touch football team, Yamba athlete Kahli Seymour has dreamed of making the state side.

The 16-year-old Year 11 Maclean High student was first picked to represent the North Coast at the NSW championships in Year 5.

At Gosford between June 20-22, Seymour will again get the chance to realise her goal after winning selection in the North Coast open women's team, following selections trials, where she played for Richmond, against the Far North Coast, Mid-North Coast and Lower North Coast.

"Ever since I first started playing touch football I've always thought of getting into the state side," Seymour said.

"Before I finish school I'd love to do it. I'll see what happens this year."

Seymour first played touch football representing Yamba Public and has been involved in the game and other sporting pursuits throughout her school career.

She also represents Maclean at rugby union, where she plays five-eighth, and in athletics and netball.
