Commitment will be put to the test at Evans Head

THREE hard-working Richmond River High School girls are looking forward to testing their skills against some of the region's best young volleyball talent.

Maddie Fiedler, Georgie Morris and Emma Sidhu will be part of the Northern Rivers Combined High Schools North Coast volleyball event on Tuesday.

Good performances in the competition at the Evans River K-12 School, which will feature teams across the region, could eventually lead to state representative honours.

Coach Kylie Day said selection for their squad, which will also include Alstonville High players, was a deserved reward for the trio.

"They are totally committed," she said.

"They're awesome and have great communication skills

"They're always looking for more training sessions."

The school's side also faces a play-off against Alstonville High ina few weeks in a separate competition.

Maddie said she was delighted with the progress she and the other players were making.

"This is new territory and very exciting," she said.

"I think we have a lot of power and really good skills."
