Daisy Barrow, in Year 10 has been selected for the U15 Girls Foil Fencing team that will compete in Wratislavia (Poland), in March.
Daisy has been working very hard over the last four years to achieve this target and is utterly delighted to reach her goal of representing her country. Daisy is currently studying for her GCSEs and juggling an intensive training programme alongside her academic studies.
Daisy’s recent achievement in the Club championships at the thriving Bath Sword Club saw her gain second place as the youngest fencer in the competition! Daisy will now fence for the South-West in an U18 National competition at Cadet Winton, in a few weeks, excellent further preparation for Poland.
Director of Sport, Miss Natalie Hannah, said ‘we encourage all of the girls at the Royal High School to pursue their passion for sport and Daisy is a dedicated athlete who is thoroughly deserved of this selection. We look forward to supporting Daisy; she is a role model to our younger students.’
