Sheffield High's Natasha joins the North of England water polo squad
Year 9 pupil Sheffield High School pupil Natasha Jones has just been selected for the Under-14 North of England water polo squad!
Natasha took up water polo about two years ago and, after a year of playing on a non-competitive basis at a development group in Heeley, Natasha went for a trial for the City of Sheffield Under-15 squad and was offered a place.
Many juniors start with speed-swimming and then move on to water polo, but Natasha is still speed-swimming for Sheffield City Swimming Club, training five times a week with them as well as twice a week with the water polo squad.
Natasha is also a keen hockey player, although training for yet another sport is increasingly difficult, she will nevertheless soon be setting off on the Sheffield High School European Sports Tour with the senior hockey and netball squads.
