The Burnside Ice Hockey Team had a good season ending up in 4th place in the Christchurch Secondary Schools’ Saturday competition.
The team had excellent spirit and always conducted themselves in the correct way. We had a couple of key players missing towards the end of the season, but everyone stepped up which was great to see. A huge thank you to Delia Van Slooten who “manned” the score bench for us this year and Rachel Gabbard-Jaspers and Ethan du Plooy assisted on the bench.
The Burnside players below excelled again this year representing Canterbury and New Zealand teams:
o Kyle Swift – Under 15 Canterbury Rep Team
o Jack Swift – Under 18 and Under 20 Canterbury Rep Team
