Lennox and Krebs, both 16, of Hobart, have been invited to the national under-17 camp in Canberra next month which is part of the selection process for the world championships team.

Lennox has been part of the girl’s under-17 squad since January last year and the Rosny College year 11 student said if her body held up she was confident of making the final line-up.

“I have been to four Australian camps for this team and they have been fantastic as a learning opportunity,” she said.

Lennox made the Australian under-17 team in September last year which beat New Zealand to qualify for the world championships that will be held in Holland in August.

“ My knee has been giving me trouble but as long as I can keep training and doing all the work I should be a good chance to make the team.”

Krebs was invited to attend his first Australian camp after good performances with the TIS men’s team on its tour of Victoria in December.

The 194-centimetre guard and New Town High grade 10 student was part of the latest TIS scholarship intake in August last year.

“It’s a great opportunity for me to play and represent my country at such a young age,” he said.

TIS head coach Justin Schueller put his scholarship holders through a three-day camp at Launceston’s Silverdome yesterday in preparation for the upcoming County Cup competition in Albury where up to 100 athletes statewide will take part.
