While pools were closed due to COVID 19, from May to August the Hillingdon Penguin water polo coaches ran many strength and conditioning sessions over Zoom. So when we came to make the Petchey Achievement Award it seemed only fitting that it should go to our most enthusiastic Zoom participant: Lize.
Lize attended a record number of the training sessions, and always tried her hardest. Ever cheerful and enthusiastic, she was altogether a bright spark on the screen. Thank you Lize, we think you’re amazing.
Lize’s mum was sworn to secrecy so that coach Shaun Hill could make a surprise presentation of the Award during one of the sessions, with her under-15 team-mates watching online.
We are grateful to the Jack Petchey Foundation for their support.
