GODOLPHIN First Lacrosse team captain Iona Dryden has been selected to represent Wales in this summer's Senior World Cup being staged in Canada.
The highly-regarded Dryden (pictured), who recently led the school to its third national title in four years, is the youngest member of the Welsh contingent and is likely to be one of the youngest players at the tournament.
However, the school's first team coach, Storm Trentham is expecting her to make a significant mark at the prestigious event.
"She may be young but she certainly hasn't been selected to make up the numbers. Iona has the experience of playing in the under 19s World Cup in 2011 and for the senior team over the last two years."
Coach Trentham added: "Iona is one of the best players the country has ever produced and I have a feeling she will be hugely talked about in Canada. She is a credit to the school and we are immensely proud of her and wish her the best of luck."
Meanwhile, former Godolphin pupil Ruby Smith has been named in the England squad for the tournament with Anna Featherstone on standby as first reserve.
"It is wonderful to have young players from this small school in Wiltshire representing their country at a senior level on the world stage," added Trentham.
Fellow pupils, sisters Katie and Annie Butcher, also represented Wales' under 19s at the Home internationals, scoring the majority of their country's goals between them.
