Just to let you know of Daisy's latest exploits. Last weekend she attended the senior shoot off at Lilleshall having already been selected to represent GB at cadet level for this year. The selection shoot was over 2 days. The first day consisted of 2 rounds of the 50m compound round, the top 8 archers going through to Sunday's head2head round. Daisy finished Saturday in 3rd place, with only a couple of points separating the top 6 archers. Then on Sunday the head2head consisted of a round robin with all the archers competing against each other, a total of 7 matches. Daisy started the day with a fixed and positive attitude and went on to win 6 out of 7 of her Matches, and earned a place on the Ladies GB Team along with Lucy Holderness and Andrea Gales.
On arriving home a frantic email to her headmaster and a hastilyarranged meeting with Sandon School in the middle of the holidays. The school have given permission for Daisy to attend all 4 events this year. This means she will miss some important exams which will now have to be sat in January!
She will be competing in Turkey - senior world cup leg 2, Croatia - junior Europa cup, Holland - senior European Championships, Denmark - Junior European Championships. Also hoping to qualify for the World FITA Field championships in France!
