Two Bolton School pupils have been called up to their national teams to compete in the Lacrosse Under-20 World Championships, which will take place in Hong Kong later this year.

Ruby Hurt, a Year 13 student, who co-captained the Bolton School first team lacrosse side during the season just gone has been selected for the Wales U20 team and Hannah Faulkner, a Year 11 pupil, has been called up for the Scotland U20s.

Both are now set to travel to the Far East to compete between August 15-24.

Delighted Bolton School lacrosse coach, Andrea Donaghy, is poud of the girls’ achievement and said: “Congratulations to Ruby and Hannah for their selection to represent Wales and Scotland at the U20 World Championships.

“This is a prestigious event and their selection is testament to their hard work, dedication and excellent skill level in the sport.

“They will be competing against the highest level of lacrosse teams from around the world.

“Myself and the PE department are very proud of both players for their achievements.

“We wish them luck and will be following their progress throughout the tournament.”
