This year we entered two mixed gender teams into the Papatoetoe and Otara invitational hockey tournament held in Papatoetoe at the Kolmar sport centre where we placed 2nd and 3rd only being defeated by the overall tournament champions.
We are extremely proud of our tamariki because many are new to the sport hockey. We are also grateful to Counties Manukau Hockey for their support and our teaching staff (coaches) who prepared the team each day of the week during morning tea leading up to the tournament.
Athletes sharing moments…
We felt exhausted during the tournament as we had to do a lot of running to defend our goal.
I am so proud of the team we gave it our very best!
The trophy was so close we had a chance to snatch it away….
