LORETO SPORTS GIRL: Elizabeth Parington

Current sport/activity: Archery.

Favourite school sport/activity: Tennis .

Best moment of Loreto Sport for you: In 2016 when my netball team won the grand final.

Favourite sporting moment as a spectator: Going to AFL games with my dad.

Any superstitions before playing sport: I have no superstitions for my sport, I believe that everything happens for a reason.

Best tune to listen to before competing: The best song or type of song to listen to before I shoot is a catchy upbeat song that uplifts my mood.
