CLUB NEWS: Civic reception for Poole girls

World U16 Champion, Macie Schmidt, was joined by club mates for a civic reception at Poole Civic Centre hosted by the Mayor of Poole, Cllr Lindsay Wilson to recognise their achievements during the 2017 season.

Financial backing from Sport Poole helped to get Macie to Australia, where she picked up the inaugural girls title as well as silver medal in the Womans Open final to round off a supercharged year which also saw her complete the British domestic double without dropping a point.

With the evening’s emphasis focussed on “girls in sport” Macie was joined by British U12 Champion, Maddie Saunders, and regional U14 Champion Anna Tuttle and BYJL regulars Jasmine Oddie, Rosie Baker and Lexi Curtis.

“Macie is a great role model for the rest of our girls squad and between them, they made vital contribution to our success in the British Club Championship and BYJL competitions.” commented their coach Jay Briggs.
