The Senior A hockey girls by Isla Huffadine

What a fantastic way we ended the 2020 hockey season on Monday night. Our 1st X1 took out the Division 1 title against Columba, winning 2-1 in an outstanding game of finals hockey. The 2nd X1 won the Division 2 title against Columba 2nd X1 - after drawing at full-time they went on to win in a nail biting shoot out! Our St Hilda's Colts beat Otago Girls 6 -1. In Division 2 our 9A girls won 1-0 against Queens 1st X1 finishing 3rd in this division and our 9B displayed some fantastic skills against Queens 2nd X1 and had lots of fun.

Well done to all of our hockey girls for a wonderful season

Our St Hilda's Highlanders (Y9 Rugby) and St Hilda's Blue (Y10 Rugby) met at Logan Park on Wednesday 23 September for a friendly match. This was to rectify a default and bye in their last round of OSSSA Girls 10 aside rugby. It was a wonderful match for both teams to finish on, a competitive and friendly even game. The exciting factor for players and spectators alike was the growth in confidence in both teams. Tries were well earned, as the respective defensive units exhibited optimum commitment.

Our desire to play rugby at St Hilda's Collegiate is high and the 2020 performance of our four teams was sensational. The school's rugby community is already looking forward to seeing the talented players of 2021 take to the field of dreams.
