Volleyball Golden Ball Awarded to TH Pupil

Sporting Event

The 2017 School Games was a national multi-sport event where the 15-year-old represented England in Volleyball, by playing in the England Cadet Women's team. A series of matches were played against the England Juniors, Scotland East, Scotland West, Wales and Ireland, with a deciding head-to-head against the England Junior Women team in the final. Charlotte’s team beat them in two straight sets, and won the overall tournament.  Seven golden volleyballs were presented to the dream team; a team consisting of the best players of that specific position in the whole tournament, and Charlotte was thrilled to receive one, in recognition of being the best libero (a defensive position in volleyball) out of all the teams. Charlotte said it was a wonderful event, stating, ‘The School Games was an amazing experience and it was an exciting opportunity to play volleyball at such a high level. I thoroughly enjoyed the professionalism and the atmosphere of the tournament.’
