SSS Success for Saints Netball!
By Saints Netball, Oct 24 2017 12:11PM
Three 'S's, three Saints - it was meant to be.
Each year, Scottish Student Sport hold a gruelling day of trials for a National Netball Squad made up of the best of the best. It's an intense process, but nothing our Saints girls couldn't handle (I mean, have you seen our training schedules? Now that's what I call intense...).
It was a nail-biting moment as the selectors read out this year's squad at the end of the day, but on the final call it was confirmed: Sally Sanderson, Caitlin Evans and Becca Hubbard all made it!
Sally, a returnee to the SSS National Squad, cannot wait to share this unique experience with her two fellow second years, stating "the experience you get from playing with so many talented girls under the expertise of coach Leighanne Carracher is invaluable."
Throughout the year our girls, along with the other fantastic players form Unis large and small, will take part in regular training sessions, as well as having the opportunity to play against an Irish Nationl Squad.
The club are so pround of the girls' achievements, and they stand testament to the quaity of players within Saints Netball which has increased by incredible amound in recent years. The hard work they have put in from pre-season onwards to gain this opportunity is representative of the ethos they have helped spearhead within a club that is dedicated to reaching its highest potential.
As the club continues in this season's BUCs campaign, Sally, Caitlin and Becca have all commented on their excitement in being able to bring their new experience home to Saints Netball, and spreading their enthusiasm across all five competitive squads.
Well done girls on such an outstanding accomplishment - we can't wait to see what this year brings for you!
