Year 11 student Lydia H has been playing Netball since the age of 6 and now spends 5 nights a week training in the sport.
Since starting playing, she has played not only as part of the school team here at South Hunsley but also for the Yorkshire Jets, Loughborough Lightening and more recently the Leeds Rhinos.
Whilst playing in one of Leeds Rhinos U19s session Lydia was spotted by an England Scout and has now been invited to trials for the England U17 Netball squad on Sunday 19 January. Not only was Lydia the only candidate chosen from Yorkshire, but if successful she will get to tour Europe playing a sport she loves.
We wish her the best of luck for her trials this weekend and cannot wait to her how she gets on.
