For most 17-year-olds the challenge of A-levels would be more than enough, but not so for Lucy Pritchard.
The former Goole High School student who is currently studying at Selby College for her A-levels has recently qualified for the AoC Sport National Netball Team, in a final squad of just twenty players. Not only does Lucy currently play for the Selby College team, she also competes for Goole, Huddersfield and Yorkshire. The dedicated sports-star began playing for Goole when she was eight-years-old. By the time she was in Year 7 she had moved on to play for the County team, having joined a netball academy in Year 6.
Last August, as part of the Huddersfield Giants under-16s squad, Lucy and her teammates got through to the national finals. For the past four years Lucy has played for the Yorkshire team and Selby College.
After she completes her A-levels, Lucy, from Goole, is keen to go on to university to study Sports Psychology.
If all of this sounds like more than enough for a full-time student, Lucy also has a part-time job as a lifeguard. Then, every Friday after college Lucy teaches three dance classes. Lucy has also achieved success in squash, having played for the Yorkshire squad last season. Representing the national team, Lucy has fixtures in Glasgow in March, Guildford in May and Cardiff in June. A busy year lies ahead!
