THERE has been more success for a Weston Rhyn school’s lacrosse department as one of their players is set to represent her country.

Coco Harpin of Moreton Hall has been selected to play for England’s under-19s lacrosse team.

The 16-year-old will represent England in the forthcoming Home Internationals Lacrosse Tournament.

Coco will be part of the squad which will be playing matches against Scotland, and Wales.

She has been part of the national academy for a year and during this time has been trialling for the home internationals.

Coco said: “We have been assessed in the training sessions since January, getting feedback after every session.

“So, the actual trial felt no different. It was high intensity as everybody was giving their absolute all. It was a very competitive environment.

“From improving my general stick skills, to being able to learn and improve my individual play, I have worked on this since Year 7.

“This year has been special as I've been able to learn and play with the Sixth Form which has been a privilege.”

Head of lacrosse coaching Hollie Harrington added: “This is a great achievement for Coco and a reflection of the hard work she has been putting in especially over the last two years.

“We wish her a lot of luck with her national debut.”
