It’s only half way through the year but Grade 9 Cathedral student, Daisy D’Arcy has already been selected for representative sport in five completely different sports this year.
The 14 year old rising sports super star has been selected to represent Townsville in Rugby League (school girls inaugural team), Futsal (national titles), North Queensland for Soccer, Cricket (national pathway program), and has also been identified by Queensland Rugby Union in Rugby 7s.
On top of that Daisy has also been selected for the Under 15 Queensland Soccer team to compete at the State Championships in Sydney later this month and a Central Queensland AFL Under 17 side to compete in October.
Training five times a week, each in a different sport, when asked what her favourite out of all the sports, Daisy said she doesn’t have a favourite, they are all fun!
Daisy’s mother Angie D’Arcy said that Daisy works really hard at her sports and loves the variety in what she does.
“As well as the team sports Daisy is also pretty good at Cross Country and Athletics having won age champion at both school events.”
“We believe in giving her the opportunity to play whatever she enjoys and know it's an exciting time in women’s sport” added Angie.
