The Henry Lawson High School student Stephanie Davies travelled to Perth during her school holidays to compete in the Australian and New Zealand Merino Fleece Young Judging Championships where she took out top honours.
After Stephanie brushed off her shock at being named the New South Wales champion in the Royal Agricultural Society/Australian Show Council Merino Fleece Young Judges competition at this year's Sydney Royal Stephanie said she was looking forward to taking part in the Australian and New Zealand Championships.
Despite Stephanie's shock at being selected to represent the state there was plenty of support for the local from her judges back home.
"She was very correct in her observation and being able to distinguish between the fleeces, she also spoke very well, really she was a stand out," 2019 Sydney Royal Easter Show judge Chris McDonnell said.
"Congratulations Steph, your school and community are so proud of all your efforts," THLHS principal Aaron Flagg said.
