Lower School pupils win Lea Valley hockey titles

The hockey teams from Lower School 1 won both the A and B team tournaments in the Lea Valley hockey tournament held yesterday.

Both teams played four matches against Broxbourne, Sele (B team), Presdales, Simon Balle and John Warner (A team).

The As won all of their matches and scored a total of 10 goals. There was great play all round but Annabel Gedye, who was solid in defence, Evie Caney and Emily Sanders played particularly well.

The Bs also scored 10 goals and had non scored against, although they did make it slightly harder for themselves because they drew their penultimate game so had to win their last match to win the tournament. This was against Presdales who are normally really strong opposition but the Haileybury team were outstanding and were deserved winners at the end of the match. Stars of the day were Charlotte Reade who scored some great individual goals, Angelica Pettifor for her effort and determination and Nina Mansbridge for her intelligent play.

Well done to both teams.
