Sophie's Medway U18 Girls Rugby Team won the 'Young Team of the Year' Gold award last week at the Medway Sports Awards where she was also one of eight finalists in the Junior Sports Person of the Year category from eighteen nominations. The awards took place at Rochester’s Corn Exchange.
Sophie, who lives in Faversham, Kent, and attended The Abbey School, is studying an Extended Diploma in Sport and Exercise Sciences and is on the Elite Girls Rugby programme.
Her Dad Nigel said "Sophie played for and captained Medway U18 Girls until she departed for The Henley College and with her help they were pretty much unbeaten in season 2021-2022 in all competitions."
Sophie first started playing rugby four years ago and has made a rapid progression, culminating in an appearance for Premiership side Harlequins at the age of 18. In September, she was called up to the England under-20 training camp.
