Pupils from Cundall Manor School are celebrating a great start to the hockey season after coming out on top in the Hambleton and Richmondshire local area tournament at Thirsk.
The U14s beat tough competition from teams across the county including Thirsk, Northallerton, Queen Mary’s, Stokesley, Easingwold and Wensleydale.
The round robin tournament, held at Thirsk School, provided the first real test of the season for many of the schools involved.
Head of Girl’s Games, Louise Bessey, said: “The team showed great commitment to beat tough opposition. They played well throughout the tournament and held firm in the closing game to wrap up another win.”
She added: “The team progressed throughout the SIX games without conceding a goal and captain Tilly Hall led from the front putting away her chances in front of goal.”
“A huge well done to all the competitors who made the day such an enjoyable experience.”
Cundall will be looking to maintain their winning start to the season with upcoming games against Yarm and Giggleswick and will progress to the County Cup at St Peter’s School in York where they will meet other district winners.
The win comes hot on the heels of Cundall Manor School being nominated for the Independent Schools Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Sport.
