Another Medal for Lannece
King’s College pupil Lannece Hole is making quite a name for herself as an all-round sportsperson.
The 16 year old, who won a sports scholarship to King’s College last September from Stanchester School, has recently won a bronze medal at the British Gymnastics Tumbling NDP Finals at Telford, as well as being named in the Exeter City Ladies football squad for the coming season.
Lannece, who has just completed her GCSE examinations, started doing artistic gymnastics at the age of five and took up tumbling five years ago with Yeovil-based Orchard Gymnastics Club.
Last season she played regularly in the King’s Girls’ Football First XI and was a member of the team that won the Under 18 Independent Schools Football Association (ISFA) 11-a-side Cup in the spring.
Barry Phelan, the Head Coach Orchard Gymnastics, said: “This was a fantastic performance from Lannece to win her 8th national medal in the last five years. She was up against some very strong opposition but yet she again delivered.”
Looking ahead Lannece is now training towards Level 6 Tumbling next year. She is aiming to reach the FIG (Federation Internationals Gymnastique) levels over the next two years.
As well as playing for Exeter City Ladies this coming season, Lannece is hoping to trial for ISFA England Girls’ age group side.
