Lucy makes a splash at water polo


A 15-year-old Culcheth girl has been selected to play for England at water polo.
Lucy Mills, a pupil at Culcheth High School, will travel to the Czech Republic over the Easter Weekend as a member of the England Under-17 team to play in the European Nations Cup.
It will be a dream come true for the youngster who has been swimming since she was five, playing water polo since she was 10 and has played for her club – Tyldsley Swimming Club – at regional and national level and has also represented the North West.
Proud dad Chris Mills – himself a former water polo player – said: “Lucy is very committed. She’s in the pool almost every day and training all the time – but at the same time she is also working very hard in what is a big GCSE year for her.”
It’s hardly surprising Lucy took up water polo. In addition to her dad being a former player, her uncle, Dennis Price, is her coach and her cousins, Megan, 25 and Hayley, 19 both play – in fact Hayley was the Great Britain Under 17s goalkeeper.
To cap all that, Grandad Peter Mills, who also lives in Culcheth, was a water polo referee and former team manager.
When she’s not in the water or studying, Lucy finds other ways of keeping active. During the last year she has completed her Duke of Edinburgh’s Award bronze medal programme and she is also involved in a young volunteers programme at Wigan.
