On Friday 17th February Leah Stewart played her first game for the Scotland u15 team. The game was played at Holy Rood High School in Edinburgh and was a friendly game against the Kool Kats u16s.
Despite being only 13 years old and being very nervous Leah played really well and gradually looked as if she was enjoying playing as the game went on. Leah did not look out of place playing against the older Kats team and routinely pulled down defensive rebounds, got out on the break and showed some nice high post moves. Leah was able to get to the basket a number of times and found herself on the free throw line after being fouled going to the basket.
Leah finished with 4 points, 1 steal and 6 rebounds, impressing the Scotland Senior Women's Head Coach Ian Gordon, who was at the game as a mentor for the Scotland u15 Head Coach Nicola McBrierty.
We will be following Leah's progress with this squad over the course of the international season.
