HOCKEY - Princethorpe College Girls qualify for Schools National Championships quarter-finals

PRINCETHORPE College’s Girls Hockey team have qualified for the quarter-finals of England Hockey’s Tier 2 under-18 Schools National Championships.


The First XI earned their well-deserved place in the final eight after triumphing in a hard-fought match on their home turf against Cheltenham College last week.


Team captain Milly Hemmings said: “It was a very close match against a talented and determined side, but we never gave up and made the most of any opportunity we had to break through.


“It was a very nervous last 10 minutes, but the team showed real resilience to get a well-deserved win.”


Princethorpe’s girls beat Solihull School 3-1, Bablake & King Henry VIII School 4-2 and Rugby School 2-0 to reach the fourth round.


And their excellent 2-0 victory against Cheltenham College means they will face Blundell’s School in the quarter-finals.


The girls now have an amazing opportunity to experience the knockout stages of a national competition as they look to progress to the semi-finals.
