23 April 2009 - Hartpury Netballer Selected For British Universities

Hartpury College netballer and third year degree student, Rosie Barrett, has followed up her recent England Universities success with selection into the British Universities squad.

Rosie played an integral part for the England Universities team that defeated Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to become Home Nations Champions earlier this month. Her performances did not go unnoticed and she was soon invited to trial for the British Universities squad.

Rosie impressed selectors and will now travel with the squad to play against Singapore, Northern Ireland and the Scottish U21 team over May, June and July. Rosie is in her final year at Hartpury College and Director of Netball, Caroline Bedford, highlights the contribution of Rosie to the Hartpury Netball Academy: 

"Rosie has played an integral part in both the Senior Academy's and her club side, Hucclecote's league victories this season. It is fantastic that she is getting recognition on a higher level for her hard work and dedication." "
