Local basketball star Bella Westbrook is one of just 11 girls who have been selected to represent Victoria in America this December.
Sixteen-year-old Westbrook will jet off to America on December 4 after being the only Victoria Country squad member selected for the international trip.
The trip will see Westbrook and her teammates land in Dallas, before travelling to Philadelphia, Washington DC and New York where the side will play in multiple tournaments.
Westbrook said she is “very excited” ahead of the 16 day trip which includes playing in the fiercely competitive She Got Game classic in Washington DC.
Westbrook was invited because of her involvement in the National Intensive Training Program and has been selected alongside 10 other girls who play basketball for Victoria Metro.
She said she is grateful to have the support of the Maryborough Lions Club which donated $500 towards the trip.
