Our U13 girls’ hockey team has fought off stiff competition to qualify for the IAPS (Independent Association of Prep Schools) Girls’ National Hockey Finals which are taking place this week at Repton School in Derbyshire.
Earlier in the month the girls had a long, tough day and some tense matches at the IAPS Hockey Qualifier hosted by Millfield School in Somerset. But their hard work paid off and after three wins, a draw and a loss the team came second in their group, earning a place in the quarter finals. They then had an epic 10 minute battle with their opposing team, with both sides showing just how much reaching the Nationals meant to them. An early goal from Beaudesert guaranteed our girls a spot in the Nationals.
The Beaudesert team will be one of 24 taking part in the event at Repton this week.
