IN THE same week two former Westfields Sports High students — Jarryd Hayne and Trent Hodkinson — helped NSW win the State of Origin, two other former students have just missed securing Queensland the ANZ Netball Championship.

Amy Wild, 24, and Kimberley Ravaillion, 20, were part of the Queensland Firebirds team that lost 53-42 to the Melbourne Vixens in the grand final at the weekend.

Former Bossley Park resident and Smithfield RSL goal shooter Wild scored 17 goals in the final and further vindicated her decision to move north in 2014 to get a chance to display the skills that won her three underage NSW crowns.

For Ravaillion, the former Yennora and Canley Heights Hot Shots centre, her focus now shifts to the Commonwealth Games where she will fulfil a life-long dream to represent Australia at Glasgow.

The pair have continued on the success from their school days where they played a big part in helping Westfields win the NSWCHS State Knockout for the past 10 years.

Wild was part of four of those teams (2004-07) and Ravaillion two teams (2009-10).
