Table tennis star and Bede’s student Yuki Wat, showed great skill and determination to win the U19 Butterfly National School Individual Championships 2014.
Yuki had already been granted a ‘bye’ for the group stage, progressing straight to the Quarter Finals in Doncaster where she won a place in the semi-finals.
In the final, Yuki faced the Lincolnshire champion and the number one seed in the country whom she beat to become the U19 English Schools’ National Champion.
Yuki also joined the England Team in the World Schools’ Championships in Lyon, France, over the Easter break. The England Team came in 3rd and gained the best result out of all of the European Teams.
Bede’s are extremely proud of Yuki and think that her achievements are absolutely wonderful. We look forward to hearing about her future successes and will be keeping a keen eye out to see whether she is selected for the Senior Schools International competition in Wales at the end of June.
