Princethorpe's Pupils Play In The England Hockey Challenge Cup
Over the summer holidays five pupils from Princethorpe College were selected to represent the South Midlands region at the England Hockey Challenge Cup Tournament. During the tournament, which took place over a four-day period, at the Nottingham Hockey Centre, pupils played two matches a day against other regional teams from across England.
The pupils were Year 12, Will Antrobus and Year 13s, Evie Phillips and Lara Tripp-Smith, as well as OPs Fin Calder (not pictured) and Tom Hollis. After a fantastic four days of play the girls finished the tournament in overall 2nd place, an incredible achievement against the top players in the country. Special mention to Evie who made it through to the National Age Group Selection process.
A huge well done to them all, it is a fantastic achievement to be selected to play for your Region and a testament to the commitment and hard work these pupils have put into their hockey over the past few years.
