Wakefield College student Stephanie Daughtery has reached 9th place in the international rankings of the World Women’s Snooker tournament.

Stephanie, a Business student, recently returned from the World Women’s Snooker World Cup in Thailand where she reached the quarter finals.

A regular on the World Women’s Snooker Tour since 2014, Stephanie has found time to juggle her college work and snooker by practising whenever she can.

Earlier this year, she won the 2019 Belgian Women’s Open Challenge Cup in addition to becoming the Under-21 champion at the same event.

Stephanie said:

“Wakefield College has been so supportive with my snooker career and always allow me to take time to practice and develop both my education and sporting career.

Last year, I found myself struggling to juggle both snooker and education, but with help from my tutors I was able to come away with grades to be proud of.

The course has helped me to develop my business skills and has given me a base to fall back on if I am ever in need of help or find myself struggling.

I've got the UK championships in September, and I'm hoping to get back my under 21s UK title. After that, I'll hopefully make the quarter finals so I can beat my personal best score”.
