28 Jul Hockey – Top of Table
Villa’s 1st XI Hockey Team had a fantastic 3-1 win over St Margaret’s. This was a huge win, not only because it now places us top of the points table for the Secondary Schools Premier League, but it also meant that we won the Pat Barwick Shield, which St Margaret’s were holding. This shield was introduced by New Zealand Hockey last year and is the NZSS Challenge Shield for Girls’ Secondary School teams. It is a great honour to be the first team to successfully win a challenge and now be the holders of the Shield!
