Christchurch Girls High School student Maddy Hutchinson has been selected to play for the New Zealand Secondary Schools polo team after playing polo for just three years.

She was thrilled and overwhelmed about making the team and couldn't believe it when she found out she had got in.

The team is made up of the top secondary school polo riders from around New Zealand.

Hutchinson's first game is this Sunday in Sefton against the Australian schools team.
