Greneway Middle School basketball star Daisy Needham has been selected to represent the East Region U15 team at an upcoming national inter-regional finals after some impressive showings for the Hertfordshire U15s in a national inter-county tournament in Norwich.
Hertfordshire took two wins out of three as they comfortably defeated Norfolk 33-14 and then Suffolk 17-16.
However, Essex proved too strong, beating Herts 26-11.
In the play-off match for a chance of revenge against Essex, Herts had to overcome Suffolk.
This proved too much though as fatigue allowed Suffolk to progress but leaving Herts with a well-deserved team bronze.
