Year 5 & 6 Quicksticks Tournament 2018
Well they certainly didn't get the weather we had booked, but despite the wind and rain, our senior hockey team enjoyed a fantastic afternoon at the 2018 Quicksticks tournament. They were drawn against some tough opponents in the opening group stages and their card ended up reading two losses and two hard-earned draws. In the second stage of the competition they were placed in Pool C where,as a result of their growing confidence, they turned in some super results. In fact, they didn't lose a single game in these latter stages and finished the afternoon top of Pool C, gaining STAR medals for their efforts. Well done to everyone for some brilliant team performances.
Mrs Robinson was struck by their team spirit and really proud of the way they represented the school over the afternoon. They remained upbeat and positive despite the weather. She would also like to give a special mention to George's mum for her brilliant support all afternoon. Her cheering, carried on the worsening wind, did such a lot for the players' confidence and belief in challenging conditions.
If there were medals for support, then George's mum would definitely have walked home with one!
