School ‘thrilled’ for 14 year-old Anaya Evans

A Braunton Academy student has become the British under-18 beach volleyball champion.

14 year-old Anaya Evans, a year nine pupil at Braunton, won a tournament earlier this month at Sandbanks and has now been chosen to represent England at tournaments in Norway and Holland in August.

The youngster also recently played in an international beach volleyball under-20 tournament in Austria, where she faced off against teams from Austria, Italy and Slovenia.

Braunton Academy Principle said: "This is an outstanding achievement for Anaya, we at Braunton Academy are all thrilled for her and we wish her every success in the forthcoming international events."
