Women’s Rugby learners and alumni continue to soar to the top of their game with eight current and former learners flying the flag for Loughborough College at last month’s 2023 Women’s Six Nations Championship.
Former College student and current Loughborough Lightning star Morwenna Talling represented tournament champs and Grand Slam winners, England’s Red Roses at the tournament.
Elsewhere in the competition, former College learner and current staff member Leah Bartlett could be seen in the Scottish team, scoring a try in an exciting clash against Ireland.
A new generation of learners and alumni are also advancing in the world of rugby, making appearances for England in the Under 20s Six Nations tournament and Ireland at the Under 18 Six Nations Festival.
Former DiSE students Kendall Waudby, Lucy Weaver, Fran Goldthorp, Lilli Ives Campion, and Katie Buchanan were all selected to represent England in the U20’s tournament meanwhile current DiSE and A Level learner Lucia Linn was named as part of the Irish Women’s U18 squad for the Six Nations Festival.
Academy sport coach, Brad Jones commented, “It is fantastic to see so many current and former Loughborough College learners achieving national and international honours.
“Their successes at this level couldn’t have happened without remarkable levels of commitment, dedication, and a relentless attitude to improve which all these learners have shown in abundance.
“These athletes showcase just how the Loughborough College & Loughborough Lightning pathway works collaboratively to support the next generation”.
With alumni and current learners all gaining a reputation for excellence in rugby, we look forward to seeing more upcoming College athletes make headlines in the future!
