Fifteen year-old Ardingly College student Lillie Franks has become England U20 International High Jump Champion.

This is an outstanding achievement as Lillie is competing with girls up to four years older than herself.

Prior to breaking up for the summer holidays Lillie was successful enough to be named as U20 Southern Counties High Jump Champion which led to her being selected to represent England at the international competition in Cardiff over the summer and to winning the event.
