THE BOYS’ HOCKEY SEASON LAST YEAR WAS ONE OF THE STRONGEST FOR SOME CONSIDERABLE TIME WITH THE 1ST XI WINNING EVERY GAME OF LAST SEASON BAR THE FINAL MATCH WHEN AN UNDER-STRENGTH TEAM TRAVELLED AWAY TO PLAY THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH WALES 1ST XI.
The team then went on to win the South Powys Championship and beat Ysgol Eirias 1-0 retaining their National title for the third consecutive year. Earlier on the same day, the U12 XI were not to be overshadowed by the senior boys and were also crowned Welsh National Champions.
Five boys (Harry Copp, Jack Christian, Jet Treasure-Jeffreys, Tom Wood and Ben Cuthbertson-Smith) also gained international honours, representing Wales at U16 and Wales U18.
Lower 6th Pupil Harry was also part of the Wales U16 team at 2016 School Games recently held in Loughborough.
Not to be outdone after a fantastic season for the girls, the U18, U16 and U14 squads were South Powys and Powys champions with the U18s and U14s coming third in the National Finals.
The 2nd XI Girls’ Hockey team also had a storming season being unbeatable in every game they played across the term against some extremely tough competition. It was a testament to their resilience, determination and excellent teamwork that they finished the season unbeaten.
To complete the good news for the girls, Lenka Halpin was called up to join the Welsh U16 National Age Group squad.
The new honours boards seem a fitting tribute to the accomplishments of the Hockey Teams at Christ College. We wish the teams equal success for this next academic year.
