Sydney Fraser : Bachelor of Communication Studies (BCS)
Netballer Sydney Fraser has been playing netball for 10 years. She was inspired by her mum who was also a competitive netballer in her youth. Sydney says that gaining an extended family with her team mates and their families is one of her favourite things about playing competitive netball, but the challenge of learning new skills and consistently growing as a netballer is what keeps her motivated. Sydney travelled to Australia to compete in the NZ U21 tour and she has also played against top Australian teams in the New Zealand Secondary Schools tournament. Her biggest achievement to date is being selected for the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic 2017 squad, and she hopes to one day become a Silver fern. Sydney will study for a Bachelor of Communication Studies majoring in Marketing while at Waikato.
