Dreams become reality as girls' U11 hockey stars become IAPS National Champions and Regional Champions

Dreams became reality for the girls' U11 hockey squad on Thursday 8 March as they finished their outstanding and unrivalled season by winning the Regional Hockey Finals.

After already being crowned National Champions, the girls were eager to finish the season on a high and were aiming to complete a remarkable double championship victory.

Full of confidence from their earlier tournament victory, the squad breezed through the group stages, winning all of their games, scoring 17 goals and only conceding 1. They then came up against Danes Hill in the semi-finals, where once again they brushed aside the competition winning 3-0.

Then came the final. St George's vs Christchurch. In a tense and close-fought contest, St George's prevailed 2-1, much to the delight of the cheering support, to become Regional Finals Champions.

Incredibly, over the course of the day, the girls won all eight of their matches, as detailed below, they scored 22 goals and only conceded 2. As well as this, the squad converted their penalty corners at their best ever conversion rate.

The girls are now U11 IAPS National Champions and Regional Champions. A phenomenal achievement! Well done from everyone at St George's!
