Di Levitt’s latest exploits on the international hockey scene have seen her play alonsgide former Olympic medallists.
She was part of the British and Irish Lionesses Masters 40+ team, a group of players across the age groups from the home nations’ masters teams, who travelled to Zagreb in Croatia.
The deputy headteacher at Martongate School said the trip was a change from her usual duty with the England team.
She said: “It was a project to help others to raise the profile of the game. We took an under-18 team to play against their youngsters too.
“Amongst the team were ex-Olympic medallists and I was very proud and honoured to be asked to play in this project and be selected in a team with many younger players.
“The challenge of playing very young national sides is something I have not had the opportunity to do before. It is always good to challenge yourself.”
The Lionesses lost their first game to the Croatian national side 3-1 and Levitt picked up a torn ankle ligament.
She recovered to play in a 6-1 win against Slovenia the following day, and later that day, was involved as the British and Irish team took revenge over Croatia with a 7-4 success.
