Recent graduate and keen footballer has a lot to celebrate

TORI Van Vegchel is celebrating getting her keys to freedom.

She recently graduated from Toolooa State High School and just this week secured her manual driver's licence.

Tori is a soccer fanatic, growing up on the sidelines while her mum played.

She got in on the action when she was five years old and has been playing ever since.

Today it's a chance for mother and daughter to celebrate, as they played together last night on the Meteorites team in six-a-side soccer.

"It's been part of our family since I was born," Tori said.

"I've made representative teams."

For now Tori has gone full time at her job in a pharmacy while she works out what she wants to do with her future.
