The 1st XI Hockey team competed in the Mayhill Cup in Whangarei during Winter Tournament Week. They were coached by Mark Kake, an ex-Black Sticks player and international coach. The first day of competition comprised two games against strong opposition in terrible weather conditions. The team was successful and progressed to the top 8 section, eventually coming 5th overall. This was a good result for this young team and looks promising for 2020. Jakob Bell-Kake, who was selected for Auckland U18 as well as the Counties Manukau mens’ team, is a talented player and one to watch for the future! We farewell our Year 13 leavers Sam Hinchcliff, Liam Dowling and Wei Kit Ng, you will be missed. Thanks to all the parents for their outstanding support throughout the season and particularly during tournament week.
