Selection for NW netball academy

Olivia Laking (Rhetoric) has been selected to play for the NW regional netball academy. She will also be training with the superleague team, Manchester Thunder.

Olivia is the only player in the regional academy to have been selected from a school team, rather than from a club or county squad. This is highly unusual and makes her selection even more of an achievement. Olivia has been playing netball at Stonyhurst for 7 years and we are very proud of our ‘homegrown’ talent! Olivia has made huge progress in the sport and her success is thoroughly well deserved. (The fact that she is 6ft 3 also helps!)
