Deer Park girls had an outstanding run during the Hockey season earlier this year, winning 3 District Hockey titles! The Year 7, Year 9 and U16 (Year 10/11) teams ended the season victorious following a series of outstanding performances.
Year 7 District Hockey Winners
Our Year 7 team had a fantastic season, winning every game. It was a great team effort and the girls trained hard together and showed an excellent level of skill on the field. The victorious squad were Aimee, Tilly, Katie, Jodie, Grace, Gaby, Tamzin and Zinny. Captain Aimee said “I was very proud of my team for winning the league because we had very good team work and we all worked as hard as we could.” Tilly added, “It was fun. It got quite tense in the last match which made it exciting.”
