Tarryn was in the team hug after NSW won the National Youth Touch Championship last year, and just one of her great achievments in the code to date.

The achievements in touch football of student Tarryn Aiken from Tweed River High School were recognised last year when she was awarded a prestigious Sporting Blue award

A Sporting Blue is the highest honour that can be bestowed on a high school-aged sportsperson from NSW public schools.

At the 2017 CHS Touch Championships, Tarryn was named the Player of the Series, and was subsequently selected in the Open team.

Tarryn has been a member of this team from 2015 to 2017. In 2017, CHS were undefeated at the National Youth Touch Championships held in Queensland, where she was again named as the Player of the Series.

In the final it was a Tarryn Aiken touchdown double that proved the difference, with the NSWCHS star helping her side cling to their lead in the dying minutes. The NSW team won 7–6.

In 2014, Tarryn was a member of the CHS under-15 years Touch team. She has also been a North Coast Region touch representative from 2013 until 2017.

At Tweed River High School, Tarryn also has an impressive Touch record; she was co-captain of the team who were state knockout winners in 2017 and runners-up in 2016.
