BARROW HILLS SCHOOL POISED FOR NATIONAL HOCKEY SUCCESS
Barrow Hills’ intrepid Under 13 boys’ hockey team is celebrating success once again after qualifying for the national finals of the Independent Association of Prep Schools (IAPS) hockey tournament.
The eight-strong team recently took on 23 other schools at the IAP’s West Hockey Tournament 2018 held at Millfield School. Barrow Hills came 2nd in their group, qualifying for the cup competition and going on to win the quarter-final, semi-final and the final with a golden goal scored by the Captain, Ben (in Year 8).
Buoyed by their success, the team will be once again travelling to Millfield in March, to battle it out at the national finals where they will be pitted against the best prep schools in the country.
The team’s coaches, James Clarke and Jonjo Conway said, “Our first U13 hockey team has done fantastically well again this year. They delivered a great team effort throughout and should all be proud of their achievements. They’ve worked hard in training and deserve every success. We now look forward to when they compete in the national finals on 20th March 2018.”Published: February 27 2018
