Some great news about Bekah Walton (Yr10)
“A few short lines to keep you updated with Bekah's progress. She continues to train hard at Loughborough University, her coach is very pleased with the improvement she is making. Throwing alongside the UK's number two female thrower, it is undoubtably beginning to affect both the confidence and quality of her throwing. It is suggested that Bekah could be throwing 50 metres next season, with the potential (with further hard work) to throw for either England or Great Britain in the near future.
South Derbyshire Council awarded Bekah the Junior Sports Woman of the Year (Runner Up) in October. In the last few days, she has been fortunate to receive a Derbyshire ICON award organised by Derbyshire Sport. The bursary will be put towards a javelin, and the leisure pass will be useful as she swims on a weekly basis at Etwall Leisure Centre.”
