Girls Hockey 2016

Joe McMenamin —

This year we welcomed a number of new players to the team and worked hard to maintain our position in the R1 girls' grade. The Year 9 girls – Jody, Aimee, Nina, Nakeisha and Danny fitted into the team with ease along with Kayley, Danielle, Samantha, Taliah, Laura and Ayla who worked incredibly hard to learn all the skills along with sign language and new hockey words that were directed at them from the sideline. Our two Rep players, Natalie Lake (U15 Wellington Hockey Girls Championship team) and Leah Forster (U15 Wellington Hockey Girls Premier team) congratulations! And Harlem who continues to work hard and gained the ‘Te Awhiahua Toko memorial award’ for the Most Improved player for Naenae College from the North Island Secondary Schools Mixed Hockey Tournament this year. We wish Rachael Rickard all the best as she leaves the team and Naenae College for bigger adventures.

You worked hard to put Naenae College on the map, all of you!!

Thank you to Eddie Forster who once again taught skills and game play to a team of enthusiastic players.
