One Mittagong Panther has tasted her first game of netball and now is on the hunt for more.
She scored a goal, she facilitated and she defended. Milla Isedale was a natural on the court for the Panthers and she loved every second of it.
"My first game was really fun," Milla said.
"I loved it and wanted to play again straight away."
Sport is an excellent social aspect that can be taken for granted. It teaches kids to work in a team, but most importantly it's fun and creates friendship. COVID has robbed Southern Highland kids of this in 2020 and Milla was ecstatic to see her friends.
"I was excited to see my friends who don't go to my school," Milla said.
"So I haven't seen them as much. But it was really exciting to also get back into sport."
It's always a dream for a debut athlete to score a goal no matter what level of competition. To get her netball career off on the right foot, that's exactly what Milla did.
"I was playing in goal attack and I scored a goal," she said.
"It was really exciting."
Expanding her sporting resume, this isn't the first sport Milla has played. She has another activity under her belt she excels at.
"I play netball for fun and to learn a new sport," Milla said.
"I have been playing hockey for the past four years."
