Netball Inspiration: Eleanor Cardwell’s Return to St. Mary’s

Eleanor Cardwell with St. Mary's students

On Monday 18th December we had the pleasure of welcoming England Netball Star and former student Eleanor Cardwell back to St Mary’s.  She delivered a training session focusing on reaction time, decision making and shooting skills followed by a question and answer session.  The session was delivered to the girls who are members of our netball club.  The girls were inspired by the hard work and dedication Eleanor has to put in in order to achieve her goal of playing for England.  Thank you Eleanor for fitting us into your busy schedule, this will be a day our students will remember for the rest of their lives.  

Eleanor has secured a two year contract playing for Melbourne Maveriks.  She is heading out to Australia at the end of January.  However you can watch Eleanor playing for England in the upcoming National Cup which is likely to be on Sky Sports – 20th/21st Jan OVO Arena Wembley and 27th/28th Jan First Direct Arena Leed.

The staff and students at St. Mary’s wish all of our community a Happy and a Holy Christmas. We welcome students back on the 8th January.
