Waikato Rural Hockey Tournament

Kate Kernaghan —

Leamington teams battle it out in the final.

It was a great day for Leamington Hockey! Two Year 5 and 6 teams battled it out in the Waikato Rural Hockey Tournament played in Hamilton, alongside 14 other teams. Both topped their respective pools and headed into tough quarterfinal matches. Some amazing teamwork and well-taken goals saw the two teams not only win their quarterfinal matches but also their semifinals. TWO teams in the final was a huge achievement and just shows the high level of hockey we have at Leamington. The Blue Sox took the win with a very close 2-1 victory over the Blue Jays. It was a great day with all the children representing our school with pride.  Special mention must go to one of our Year 6 girls who picked up a sportsmanship award.  Thank you to the parents who supported the children for the day.
