It was a busy summer for some of College's hockey players and staff as three girls achieved representative honours in their hockey.
Brittany Sutton-Page, 1st XI captain, has been part of England Hockey's Advanced Apprenticeship in Sport (AASE) programme. This is designed so that the players self-evaluate their performance and covers many different facets of hockey. On completion, Brittany will receive an NVQ accreditation. In addition to this, Brittany was selected to play for one of the England teams at the 2017 Sainsbury’s School Games, a multi-sport event held at Loughborough University in which Brittany won a silver medal.
At England Hockey's Futures Cup, held at St Alban's over four days, both Emily Drysdale and Jemima Rees were selected to represent the Celtic Jaguars U17 team. Staff members, Mr Gwyn Williams as coach, Mr Will Packer as manager and Mr Henry Davies as Strength and Conditioning, were also present with the Jaguars as part of the management teams of both the girls’ and boys’ squads.
With 22 players also embarking on an exciting tour to Malaysia, it was a very successful summer for College’s female hockey players.
