Anyone For Hockey With An Olympic Champion!

Anyone for hockey! Louth Academy students with GB Hockey Captain and Olympic Gold-medallist Kate Richardson-Walsh, who visited the Academy for a couple of hours to chat with students before handing out awards at the inaugural Louth Academy Presentation Evening at Louth Town Hall.


Hockey superstar Kate Richardson-Walsh visited the new Louth Academy Upper Campus and gave students a masterclass in hockey techniques.

The Olympic Hockey Champion, who was Captain of the GB team that won Gold in Rio in 2016, said: "The sports facilities the children have here at Louth Academy are simply amazing."

Kate signed autographs and chatted for a couple of hours with the students, who were all eager to meet the Olympic Champion.

Year 8 student Harvey Walker, who was one of many students who posed questions to Kate, said afterwards: "It was amazing meeting Kate. She was so nice. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity."
