Wonderkids Wednesday: Brighton College’s Lily and Saiana

Sharing this week’s Wonderkid Wednesday award are Brighton College, Abu Dhabi teammates Lily and Saiana.

Lily,13, is captain of the school’s netball team but in her absence at a recent BSME netball tournament Saiana,12, stood in and she brilliantly led the side to victory at the tournament.

With Lily back in the team for the wider BSME under-13 Games, the team pulled off an incredible victory.

Battling hard in the final on Saturday Brighton College ignored any build up of lactic acid to clinch an enthralling final by a goal after double extra time.

Saiana was busy during this match controlling the midcourt while Lily was stoic in defence.

In addition to this the two players, along with most of their netball team, also played alongside each other in the BSME football tournament the day previous.

The duo both agreed that the friendships shared across the team are crucial to their success.
