Wales U18 star Beth Wood has won the Hockey Writers’ Club National Youth Award for her contributions to the sport at school, club and country level.
The Christ College, Brecon pupil, who joined the College from Brecon High School in September 2017, played a key part in the College U18 side that retained the Welsh National Championship title in March.
She is also the current 1st XI team’s top scorer with an incredible 24 goals in 10 matches – a school record.
Dominic Phelps, Head of Hockey at Christ College Brecon said: “Beth’s achievement is more than well-deserved, and Christ College is certainly grateful to have an athlete of her calibre as part of its flourishing hockey programme”.
Wood also plays for one of Wales’ leading club sides at Cardiff Metropolitan University – Cardiff Met Hockey Club – and has also been a core member of the Wales U18 girls’ team for a number of years.
She recently moved towards full international honours when she broke into the Wales senior squad for the first time with selection for the recent Test series against Scotland – the first Christ College girl to achieve that status.
