Best Person for the Job!

Introducing our new Senior Netball Captain, Summer Best.


Position:

Centre

Clubs outside of school:

Llandudno Swimming Club

Other Sports:

Swimming, Athletics, Tennis and Rounders

Awards in and outside of school:

Gold in Welsh Swimming Summer Nationals. St David’s College Junior and Middle Sportsperson of the year. 

Most memorable game:

On tour in Jersey against a really strong team of Year 11, 12 and 13. It was a fun game because it was challenging. We lost but it was a good experience to play with the team and work really hard together because the opposition was so strong. It’s not always about winning: it’s about having fun with your team and working out how you can gel and overcome difficult situations together. We still talk about that game now. 


Summer came to St David’s in Year 7 and has just started her final year. Summer couldn’t have a more appropriate surname as her sports career is an impressive one. A talented swimmer, Summer achieved gold in the Welsh Summer Nationals and also qualified for the British Nationals when she was 16. During her time at St David’s, Summer has won an abundance of sports awards including swimming, athletics, tennis and rounders, the most prestigious being the Junior and Middle Sportsperson of the Year. Will she get the hattrick and win the much coveted Senior Sportsperson of the Year before she graduates? Watch this space!



Summer’s plan for the team this year, along with Netball Coach and PE teacher Mrs Jones, is to work on different sequences and to improve fitness after a long Lockdown without team sports. Mrs Jones explains that the girls are now allowed to train with the ball in their bubbles so the focus can be on ball play, passing patterns and working on defence and attack strategies. 

“We really hope that we will be able to play other schools at some point this year”, says Summer optimistically, “and in the meantime, we’re going to work hard to improve our skills while having fun too.”
