Five lacrosse players from Bolton School Girls’ Division have been part of National Academies this year: three girls joined the England National Lacrosse Academy, while two more have continued their involvement with the Wales Under 19 Lacrosse Academy.

Chloe Ferguson (Year 13), Martha Halford (Year 12) and Ella Brophy (Year 11) progressed to the England National Lacrosse Academy: a fantastic achievement for all three pupils. Their recent success at the Academy meant that they were selected for the Under 21 Home International Tournament, which was hosted by Scotland in April at the Peffermill Playing Fields, The University of Edinburgh. Martha competed in the ‘A’ Tournament, with Chloe and Ella competing in the ‘B’ Tournament.

Following on from their success at the Home Internationals, Chloe and Martha had the opportunity to compete against Italy during the Easter holidays. This August, Martha and Ella will travel to Prague to play the Czech Republic National Team. This has overall been a fabulous experience for all the girls.

Meanwhile, Phoebe Hurt (Year 13) and Ruby Hurt (Year 11) have continued to attend the Wales Academy Programme.  They competed against England and Scotland at the Under 21 Home International Tournament in Edinburgh, with Phoebe playing in the ‘A’ Team and Ruby representing Wales for the first time in a National event in the ‘B’ Team.

Congratulations to all of these girls on representing their countries.
