Rising star Louisa Brunt continued her impressive form when she finished second in the English Schools’ National U-16 Championships at Rochdale Golf Club.It gained the Ashton-under-Lyne player, who was just a shot off the pace, automatic selection to represent ESGA in an international match against Wales at Lytham Green Drive on August 18-19.
