Girls good friends and good sports

SHELBY Hooklyn, Olivia Morrison and Emily Hansell are three girls who met in kindergarten and have been inseparable ever since.

The three friends are all in Year 11 at Grafton High School and are all incredibly sporty.

Between the trio, they cover hockey, netball, basketball, touch and oz tag, and still manage to set aside some time for study.

Sport has always been a big part of Shelby’s life and she doesn’t plan on changing it any time soon.

“Team sport has a great social aspect so you meet heaps of new people and make great friends. It is also heaps of fun and you get fit so it is great,” she said.

Olivia said that when she gets the chance, she loves to head to the coast.

“We head to Yamba or Minnie with everyone and just swim and hang out,” she said.
