She's captain of Bathurst High Campus and the skipper of the Bathurst Giants youth girls team, so there's no surprise that youth councillor Zoe Peters was elected as the new youth mayor of Bathurst.
Ms Peters, who has already served one term of the Bathurst Youth Council, was elected as the new youth mayor earlier this month, with St Stanislaus' College student Joshua Borland appointed the deputy mayor.
Serving alongside 13 other youth councillors, Ms Peters said she's looking forward to leading the council as it engages with the community and its young people.
"I'm really looking forward to leading the other 13 amazing young people on the youth council, who are all very passionate about the community and the youth in their community," she said.
"I'm also looking forward to maintaining our transition onto social media platforms, which will be big this term because of COVID, as we won't be able to have too many events.
"We'll definitely be trying to have events if things change. We've had a colour run planned, which was going to be really exciting. We had to hold that off because of COVID.
"Our Food and Flix event is always very popular and we'll definitely be looking at holding different events if we're allowed."
Ms Peters said she's been grateful for the opportunity already to service on the youth council.
"It's an amazing opportunity," she said.

"I loved it the first year and it's an amazing experience to be on the other side of events, instead of attending them and having them organised for you. It's interesting to work behind the scenes and be able to be part of the decision making."
Born out of town near Mandurama, Ms Peters has moved to Bathurst recently, however, she's been at her high school since year 7.
And she's been playing Aussie rules football for three seasons now, a sport she originally volunteered to play without much knowledge of it.
"It was never something I was into. The girls at school needed some numbers, so I volunteered for that and I ended up loving it," she said.
"I started with the first year of the youth girls competition, when it first got going. I was lucky to be voted the youth girls captain for this year."
And speaking of sport, it's a big year in 2021, with the pending return of the Astley Cup after it was cancelled this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
"It will be very exciting to be captain of the school during Astley Cup, but it'll be very scary as we've won three in a row and missed this year," she said.
"The pressure is definitely on. We'll definitely be looking for a win, but we were lucky to have Denison Cup this year between Bathurst and Kelso."
Ms Peters is also involved in a number of other community organisations too, including headspace, where she helps develop programs, and the Rural Fire Brigade in Lyndhurst.
