Maya Chosen to Represent West Yorkshire

Added: September 20th, 2018

We received news that Maya Lewis Simpson in Year 9 has been selected to represent West Yorkshire at netball. She attended trials on at Bradford academy on Saturday and was called back again on Sunday. Maya has worked hard in netball over the last two years at school. She originally started off playing basketball for a team out of school but decided to join the school netball team and pursued this sport instead.

The Year 7 netball team as a whole were very successful and won the league but Maya clearly stood out in her position as Goal Attack.  Maya joined Huddersfield Giants last year and still plays for them in the performance squad on a Thursday night. It is the first time a student from Royds Hall has been selected to represent West Yorkshire and are extremely proud of her successes.
