Lau­ren packs a punch

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

A Cathkin High School pupil picked up the Ju­nior Stu­dent of the Year award for her im­pres­sive per­for­mances in taek­wondo.

Fourth year Lau­ren Rus­sell has been going from strength to strength and is now just below a black belt.

She has been train­ing three times a week and started taek­wondo to build con­fi­dence and self-as­sur­ance.

Lau­ren was shocked to find out she had won the prize.

She said: “There are lots of amaz­ing stu­dents who train with me and I felt that I wasn’t in with a shot at win­ning.

“I was thrilled to hear my name be­ing an­nounced and to hold up the tro­phy.”

Next on Lau­ren’s agenda is to achieve a black belt af­ter win­ning the award.

Su­per work Lau­ren is beam­ing af­ter re­ceiv­ing her award
