U13s Boys crowned County Champions
Monday, 05 March 2018
On Tuesday 27th February, Monkton Prep School hosted the U11 and U13 County Hockey Championships for boys. With 15 teams from Bristol and Bath across two age groups, there was a high standard of hockey on display and goals aplenty on a day which saw sun, wind, sleet and snow challenge the players and spectators. However, Monkton’s U13 hockey team, led by Jack Webb, who also plays for Team Bath Buccaneers, came out on top of the elements and on top of the group, thanks to six wins and one loss in their eight-team round robin, beating Prior Park, KES and Kingswood among others. Jack said, “We suffered an early defeat, so the pressure was on, but the boys stepped up, played superb hockey and won all their remaining games. We are delighted to be County Champions!” The team now goes on to play at the West Finals in late March, two days after their trip to the IAPS National Hockey Finals!
