Barr Sisters to Compete for U21 Northern Ireland Field Hockey Team

Liberty field hockey sisters Bethany, Serena and Natalie Barr have competed for the Northern Ireland field hockey team for several years now, dating back to their competition on the U16 and U18 squads. This year, the Barr sisters are competing on the U21 squad.

Twins Bethany and Serena competed for the U21 squad during spring break this past year. The duo squared off against the U21 Scotland team, winning all three outings. Bethany netted a goal in the final game of the series.

Beginning on Tuesday, all three sisters will be squaring off against the English U23 development squad for a three-game series, extending to June 25. Serena has been named captain for the upcoming matches for the U21 Northern Ireland/Ulster Junior team. The contests will be played in London, England.

"We are all looking forward to these games and are aware of the competition that we will face against England," commented Natalie Barr. "It is a time for us to learn and grow both as individuals and as a team."
