Everyone at Storm would like to congratulate Sophie Kelly, Scarlett Creasey, Marlene Lange and Holly Turnbull for their invitation to the Roses Academy Selection Camp in December.
All four athletes have progressed steadily through the Storm Pathway, even culminating in a Superleague contract for 16 year old Kelly this season.
Sophie, who attends St Swithuns School, was a member of the U17 Roses Squad last season, and represented her Country at the U17 Netball Europe Championships earlier this year.
Wellington College pupil Scarlett Creasey, who like Kelly – plays her club netball for Weston Park Blades, is a rangy defender who has already got a season of U19 NPL netball under her belt despite being only 16 years old.
Versatile netballer Marlene Lange was part of the U16 National Schools winning squad from Guildford High this year, and having impressed at Downs Club, our Central Academy and for the U17s at Storm last season – is now thriving in our U19 NPL side.
An athlete who has had an impressive rise to NPL netball is Holly Turnbull. The Brighton College student plays for Sussex Netball Club and is a graduate of our South Academy, Turnbull has represented Storm at both U15 and U17, and is looking to make her debut at U19 level this season.
Head of the Performance Pathway, Emily Nemeth, is a huge advocate of all four athletes: “We really couldn’t be prouder of all four girls and their invitation to the Roses Academy Selection weekend this year.
“They have all worked incredibly hard at every age group, and deserve this opportunity to show the Roses selectors just what they can do.
“Our Pathway continues to produce amazing athletes, and we are so grateful to them for working hard and for our coaching team for imparting their wisdom and supporting them at every step of their journey.”
