Rydal Penrhos’ senior netballers were honoured for their efforts throughout the season at a special event.
A number of talented individuals were presented with their end of season accolades at the school’s annual Sports Awards Dinner prior to the half term break, with former pupil and ex-professional Andrew Fenby presenting the prizes in his role as special guest.
Captain and sports scholar Nia Humphreys has led by example in the role during her first year as a Sixth Form pupil at the school, and this resulted in the teenager picking up the Player of the Year distinction as a result of her efforts.
Holly Battersby’s impressive development in all areas throughout the campaign saw her come away with the Most Improved Player of the Year Award, and although there were no full colours awarded this year, Nia, Keira Bonnington, Brona Richardson and vice-skipper Alexandra Williams were presented with half colours for their respective contributions during the season.
Head of Girls’ Games Nicky Head, said: “I would like to thank Nia and Alex for their help and support as captain and vice-captain of the first team, along with Cerys and Sydney in their role for the 2nd VII.
“I would also like to give a thanks to Cerys for her umpiring during the evening league matches and congratulate her side Rydal Penrhos Dolphins on winning the Bopper Junior League this year.
“A very big thank you also goes to Mrs Bakewell, Miss Sellick, Mrs Jones, for all that they have done to make the season a success.”
