The Belhaven Hill U11 and U13 boys hockey teams both claimed top spots at the IAPS Seven a Side Competition, held recently at Fettes. For the U11 boys, this was a successful defence of their title as they won it last year as well.
We were delighted with the efforts of the teams on Monday as both our U11 boys and U13 boys won their competitions and so earned the right to represent the school and Scotland in the National Finals in March when they will come up against the best prep schools from the rest of the country. The U11 tournament will take place in Derby, at Repton School while the U13s will be a bit further afield at Millfield, Somerset.
The U11s drew one of their matches and won all the rest while the U13s lost only their final match knowing that they had already grasped the top spot.
This success at seven a side matches the boys' other performances as both teams remain unbeaten in regular fixtures so far this term.
The boys are very excited about heading south on their mini tours and are thinking of ways to raise money for the trips.
