This makes Orla, presently in Year 11, one of the top 40 Under 17 players in Yorkshire and ranks her in the top 300 Under 17’s nationally.  

Orla has worked incredibly hard for this selection and St. Mary’s is delighted with her achievement in an area where the competition is very high.

“It has been a delight to see Orla continually develop and progress through the junior ranks of Netball. This selection is just reward for the hard work and dedication Orla has given to the sport so far. I am confident that Orla will represent herself, her family and St. Mary’s with pride. She is a wonderful athlete who has the potential to achieve elite performance. We are very excited as a school to follow Orla’s progress in the coming months and years.”
