Three in U14s Warwickshire Netball Academy

Princethorpe College is congratulating a trio of Year 8 sporting stars: Molly Geehan, Anna Wells and classmate Lily Dyble have successfully trialled for the U14s Warwickshire Netball Academy.

Following three separate trials plus an extensive all day screening programme the girls were delighted to receive the news that they had been accepted. The outcome is especially sweet considering they are a year under the age group category.

Molly, who plays Goal Shooter, only took up the sport at the start of Year 7 making her swift trajectory to County player all the more remarkable. Goal Defence team mate Lily Dyble is well known for her fighting spirit on court. College Coach Mrs Debs Brookes comments that ‘nothing will get past Lily if she can help it!’ Goal Attack Anna Wells, who Mrs Brookes describes as ‘one of the most outstanding netball players I have seen at such a young age,’ completes the trio who will be representing Warwickshire. Princethorpe’s U13 netball team looks set to achieve new heights this coming season with three county players under their belt.

“The girls’ news will certainly boost morale within the team,” added Mrs Brookes: “To have three players selected from Year 8 to play at Academy level is excellent news. I am so glad that their potential has been recognised.”
