U13 Winners at Highfield Hockey Tournament
Alton School has recorded its first hockey tournament win at Highfield School! A combined team of Year 7’s and 8’s produced some inspirational play which culminated in one draw and then successive wins, ultimately clinching the Tournament final.
Their last game was particularly thrilling as the girls were not prepared to give their opponents any quarter. Particular plaudits for the goal-keeper, Amelia Rich, and Jemima Hodges for establishing Alton’s early lead. However, it was Lara Bassett who, with perfect aim, scored Alton’s second goal and secured the win. The girls were ecstatic and thoroughly deserved their gold medals. Well done to all the team!
