Schoolgirl signs for Magic

5:40 pm on 1 November 2009

The Waikato/Bay of Plenty Magic have completed their playing roster for the 2010 trans-Tasman netball competition by signing up a 17-year-old schoolgirl.

Defender Amy Christophers, a seventh former at Mt Maunganui's Otumoetai College, is the surprise final name on the Magic's team list.

Teams had to finalise their squads by Saturday and her Magic call-up was a complete shock to Christophers.

Apart from netball, which she has played at age-group and New Zealand secondary school level, Christophers has excelled in volleyball and athletics.

Magic squad for 2010: Jodi Brown, Amy Christophers, Tanya Lund, Laura Langman, Elias Shadrock, Peta Scholz, Frances Solia, Jodi Tod, Jess Tuki, Irene van Dyk, Kahurangi Waititi, Casey Williams.
