Molly Hole captained the national Under 17 team to the Netball Europe Championship title.

The South Wilts Grammar School student plays Goal Shooter and was part of the squad for the tournament in Wales last weekend (March 6th, 7th and 8th).

The 16 year old and her teammates took on Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Switzerland and won all of their matches.

Molly plays her club netball for Weston Park Blades and Team Bath.

She's being tipped as a strong future prospect in the sport, with the Vitality Roses England Netball head coach Jess Thirlby in the crowd for the Under 17 tournament.

Natalie Roddy, Team Bath Netball Academy Head Coach, said: 

"Congratulations to Molly on her captaincy and to England on their success. Molly is an inspiring athlete who leads by example both on and off the court. She is a huge asset to her Team Bath squad and we are looking forward to supporting Molly in her journey."

"Molly has taken great ownership of her training programme and has applied herself brilliantly both at Team Bath and in her personal sessions in her home environment. She has adapted to maximise opportunities and her effort is relentless. The resulting success is a strong reflection of her curiosity and dedication."
