Lizzy finished 10th in the final and is still eligible in the age group next year.
The team finished sixth out of 26 which was a fantastic achievement against older and more experiences teams.
In addition to selection for the Europeans, Lizzy has also been selected for the
East Midlands triathlon team for the School Games this month and will race for GB at the Super League in Malta in October.
