U13s are National Hockey Champions!

On Friday, 10 May the U13 Hockey Team travelled to Nottingham Hockey Centre to compete in the England Hockey Schools Championships Finals.

Having won both the Warwickshire and Midlands rounds coming past 18 other teams on the way they were then competing with the top 8 school sides from around the country.

They cruised through their first two group games against Kings Chester and Kings Taunton which meant unless they had a heavy defeat in the final group game they were guaranteed a place in the final. They played a very strong St Georges College team but showed great character to win 3-2 and give themselves a shot at being crowned national champions.

The final started off very close with a physical Yarm School team working hard to stop Warwick’s more fluid style of play. Eventually they broke the deadlock going 1-0 up only to let Yarm in to equalise. A goal from George then put Warwick ahead into half-time and after half-time they went through the gears with goal from Nikki and Ollie to win 4-1 in impressive style.

This crowned them National Champions for the first time in Warwick School History and is a fitting reward for the hard work they have put in over the last two years.

HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to all the players - your school community is very proud of you.
