Cowley U14 hockey champions!

Cowley International College’s U14 girls hockey team have been crowned champions at the recent North West State Schools Hockey Championships.

Competing against state schools from across the region, Cowley came out on top after recording an impressive set of results that saw them win four games and draw the other from their five-match series, giving them the best record of all the teams involved.

The girls achieved victories over Bramhall, Lytham St Annes, Sale and Wellington with a 0-0 draw against Bishop Heber in the middle with some excellent performances across the whole team.

P.E. teacher and hockey coach, Mrs Irwin, said: “I’m extremely proud of the girls for winning this tournament.

“We came up against a lot of strong teams, but the girls played some exceptional hockey and showed a great togetherness and team spirit by encouraging each other which got the best out of them.

“They demonstrated the core Cowleian values, played the game in the correct spirit and thoroughly deserved their success.”

The next major competition for the team will be the National State Schools Championships which is held in Nottingham later in the year.
