Girls Year 7/8/9 Indoor Hockey Tournament

The inaugural Girls Year 7/8/9 Indoor Hockey Tournament took place this week at Gateshead Leisure Centre. There was a very pleasing response to this new tournament especially when considering the time of year it was organised for.

5 teams competed for the right to be crowned Gateshead Secondary Girls Indoor Hockey Champions. The tournament was organised in a Round Robin format where everyone plays everyone else. This format helps to ensure the best team on the night emerge victorious.

Whickham A team were the undisputed winners by remaining unbeaten all night. They showed some excellent individual skills as well as great team work – a perfect combination for any team. Cardinal Hume B team took 2nd place following a tightly fought game with their own A team.

Whickham B team were presented with the Respect Award for this tournament. They were chosen unanimously by the members of staff present due to their exemplary attitude at all times. They were pleasant to their own team mates, opposition and officials alike despite the fact that they lost all their games.

Well done to all concerned and these are the overall results:
