This group of Year 8’s have had an awesome season playing in Division 2 of the Yr 7 & 8 grade they have been playing against boys teams with the odd team having a couple of girls. Coming into the season many of them lacked confidence and belief in themselves. They have continued to grow into the game and on Friday night played an awesome 40 minutes of hockey to take the 2-1 win over the Pleasant Point boys and 3rd place. There have been many comments about their improvement, they play as a team and their passing is a feature. They are all part of the South Canterbury development programme and along with some of the Craighead 2 players will travel to Christchurch on Sat 28th Aug to represent South Canterbury in a one day tournament.
Team: Libby Brown, Ruby Jackson, Amy Williams, Lucy Flynn, Sophie Kelly, Jess Skinner, Meg Ritchie & Lulu O’Sullivan
It has been a pleasure being involved with these girls and I look forward to seeing how they progress in the coming years.
