06 Jun Boys 1st XI Hockey Qualifies for Supercity Competition
Our 1st XI Boys’ Hockey Team has backed up last year’s performance with a good start to the 2019 season. The team, led by captain Sam White, has competed in the Auckland Open A Grade, and has qualified for the Supercity Premier Competition for the second consecutive season. This is an awesome achievement, given that this is a very young team.
The team beat Avondale College 3 -1 in their playoff match to qualify in the top 4 teams in Auckland, along with St Kentigern College, Kings College and Auckland Grammar. The top 4 teams in Auckland will join the top 4 teams from North Harbour to play in the Supercity Premier Competition, which is the highest level of competition for the Greater Auckland region.
The team, coached by Matt Dowdle and Director of Sport Clive Daniels, will be working hard this year in preparation for the Rankin/India National Premier Tournament in September.
