A handful of medals

Published Wednesday 30th of November 2011 10:55:34 AM

Following on from their earlier success at the regional IAPS girls� hockey tournament, three of Gresham's girls� hockey teams competed at the IAPS National Finals in November. With a Gresham�s team reaching the final in every age group, this might have seemed success enough; yet the girls strove for one better, coming away with a full house of medals!

The U12 finals were played at Queenswood School in Hertsfordshire, and despite the high calibre of competition from the likes of Millfield School, the Gresham�s girls sailed through the group rounds, meeting Ashfold in the final. After a sensational performance, Gresham�s took the gold to become National Prep School Champions with an impressive 4-0 victory!

The U11s and U13s also came away from the finals with a medal. Finishing third and fourth in their groups, the girls went into the Plate competition; this is where the third and fourth teams from each group battle it out for final rankings. Although the U13s lost the semi-final of the Plate, they won the third place play off against Perrott Hill 2-1, earning them a medal and a well-deserved pat on the back from Gresham�s coaching staff. The U11 girls emulated this success in the tournament played at Bishop Stortford, finishing 3rd in the plate competition and gaining a medal.
