Netball StarDate Posted: 18/02/2013 | Posted In: Latest news
Fiona Dewar, a first year student at QE, has had a remarkable netball season. Fiona, who represents QE’s A Team and Oaksway Netball Club, has recently been selected as part of the 20 strong British Colleges’ Sport Elite Netball Squad.
To gain her place in the Elite Squad, Fiona attended and was successful at North East, Northern Trials and a final overall National Trial. She is now a fully-fledged member of the British Colleges’ Sport Squad that will play matches against college teams from other nations, university teams and will go on an end of season European tour in the summer.
‘I’m absolutely over the moon to have won a place in the Elite Squad. It was a long trialling process and it is good to be rewarded. The standard is very high and I am pleased that my hard work has paid off.’
Paul Carroll, Sports Development Co-ordinator at QE, said:
‘Fiona has had a great year, progressing from College and Club Netball through to the National Colleges’ Squad. She is a credit to QE, her family and herself.’
Fiona is studying AS Level Biology, Chemistry, French, Geography and Critical Thinking and hopes to go on to university to do a Science degree.
