‘‘I'm better at swimming but I enjoy netball,'' she said.
The 17-year-old South Otago High School pupil loves the ‘‘competitive side'' of sport and has a long list of achievements to prove it.
Along with playing for the school's top netball team, she is an under-17 netball representative and was selected for the Otago development trial.
Stephanie has also represented the province in swimming as an Otago Country swimming representative.
Having competed in the Otago and South Island secondary schools swimming competitions, she went on to become a South Island swimming representative and competed in the national division two swimming competition.
From chlorine to salt, she also spends a lot of her time at Kaka Point as a surf lifesaver.
Success came her way in the sport when she received an IRB crewman award and a bronze award.
Stephanie also dabbles in social touch rugby and plays badminton for South Otago.
Different cultural activities benefit from her enthusiasm during school as she is involved in productions and Stage Challenge.
Becoming head girl was a proud moment, and she displayed leadership qualities through the role this year, as well as being a peer support leader.
Achievements: Head girl; peer support leader; South Island and Otago Country swimming representative; surf lifesaving IRB crewman and bronze awards; Tai Poutini Polytechnic Environmental Award; gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.
