A group of talented young netballers have been rewarded for their fine contributions to a regional league with a series of awards.
More than 20 aspiring stars from Years 7-10 were involved in the Junior Boppers League throughout North Wales during the campaign for both the Rydal Dragons and Rydal Dolphins
Emily Thomas picked up the Dragons’ Players of the Season Award, while the Most Improved Player of the Year distinction went to Hermione Rose Toulmin.
The Dolphins, who finished as deserved runners-up in their league after a standout season of consistency, saw Sydney Johnson crowned Player of the Year and Cerys Cuddihy winning the Most Improved Player of the Season.
All four pupils picked up their respective accolades at the Colwyn Netball Club’s Presentation Evening held earlier this month.
The group have been working incredibly hard on improving their overall game under the guidance of Rydal Penrhos’ specialist netball coach Heidi Bakewell and Head of Girls’ Games Nicky Head, while also taking full advantage of the school’s dedicated strength and conditioning programme to improve their overall endurance.
Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “Playing in the Junior League has aided the development of each pupil involved considerably, and they deserve an enormous amount of praise for the dedication they have shown throughout another very successful season.
“They can all be enormously proud of their achievements and use this as a huge confidence boost as they look to progress their respective games next year.”
