Millfield Upper Sixth pupil and 1st team netball captain Hannah Passmore from Wells has been named in the Team Bath Netball squad for the 2019 Vitality Superleague season.
Hannah, who is studying for three A levels in Mathematics, French and History, is the only squad member to be born in this millennium after celebrating her 18th birthday in December.
The Sixth Former who plays as a goal shooter has been with the Team Bath programme for four years and has progressed through the pathway into the Superleague Team. Hannah will also be vice captain of Team Bath’s U21 squad in the 2019 Netball Performance League (NPL), having played a pivotal role when they won bronze in the league and silver in the NPL Tournament last season.
Millfield Netball has strong links with a number of Superleague franchises, with athletes playing at U17, U19 and U21 National Performance League level. Millfield is also home to one of the U17 Severn Stars Nova Academies, which provides weekly court and strength and conditioning sessions for athletes aspiring to progress within the franchise.
Millfield’s Director of Netball Jenna Culley has also recently been announced as Assistant Coach of Welsh Netball, helping the team prepare for the 2022 Commonwealth Games alongside her role at Millfield. Hannah says, “I am very grateful for the direction that I was given at Millfield Prep, where my journey as a Goal Shooter started. My hard work and determination, along with the guidance from my coaches at Millfield Prep and the unwavering encouragement and understanding of Miss Culley at Millfield, has helped me to get to where I am today.”
Hannah’s coach and Millfield’s Director of Netball, Jenna Culley, says, “I am absolutely thrilled for Hannah and her selection into the Team Bath Superleague squad. Hannah is an incredibly dedicated and mature individual who I know will really take this opportunity with both hands. I believe this is the start of things to come for Hannah and I look forward to watching her thrive at Team Bath.”
