Country Call-Up for Moreton Girls

23 Mar 2016

Six girls from Moreton Hall have been selected for the U19 Welsh Lacrosse Junior Elite Squad.

The squad is working on a performance programme to develop their skills as part of their training for the 2019 Junior World Cup. A and B teams are selected from the Academy, Talent and Development Squad and the Combined Training Squad to represent Wales at the annual Lacrosse 2016 Home Internationals Tournament in Surrey on the 15-17th April.

Serena Grace, Lower 6, and Clemmie Baynes, Year 11, have also been awarded Vice Captaincy of their respective teams. The girls have been training with the squad towards this tournament since the start of the season, and are all really looking forward to playing for their country, some for the very first time.

Kate Groves, Head of Sport comments: “It is an exceptional achievement to be called up for your country, and is something the girls should be extremely proud of. We are so pleased that their talent has been spotted and this selection really does highlight the standard and strength of Lacrosse at Moreton.”
