Students Coached by National Team
Two Stamford High School pupils were rewarded, when they won a competition which allowed them to train with three England netball players. Activate Sport ran International Netball Roadshow events during the summer at Witham School and Oundle school. April Gay, a Year 8 pupil won the star of the week award at Witham, an Alex Wilkinson won star of the week at Oundle.
The girls trained with Jo Harten and Sarah Bayman who are in the current England squad and Karen Atkinson, who is ex-England, but is now lead coach with Loughborough Lightning. Both girls thoroughly enjoyed the day, and loved getting specialist coaching from their heroes.
