Lucy joined The Broxbourne School in 2004 at the end of Year 8 and immediately took advantage of the sporting opportunities on offer. She joined the highly successful netball team and was a member of the team that won the National Finals in 2006.
Outside school, Lucy had already taken an interest in golf and found her teachers very supportive of her passion for sport and sport science. She studied for A-levels in PE, Applied Business and Chemistry before leaving for the University of Hertfordshire where she took a degree in Sport and Exercise Science. An injury led to an interruption in her golfing career, but she concentrated on her studies, focusing on 'Golf and Biomechanics' for her dissertation.
After leaving university Lucy pursued a career in golf as a full-time amateur. She won the Irish Ladies Open Amateur Championships in May 2014 and narrowly missed qualifying for the British Open. Lucy is now turning professional and is playing on the Ladies European Access Tour, hoping to qualify for the Open next year. Her ultimate ambition is to play the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) tour and to establish a career in the USA.
The Broxbourne School was instrumental in Lucy's sporting and academic success, and she says "Broxbourne was brilliant for sport. I loved playing netball and travelling with all the girls. There's an expectation that you work hard, but also that you have fun with it. It pushes you to make the best of yourself both in the classroom and on the playing field."
