Go Grammar! U15 Div 2 ACT Junior Girls Hockey Premiers for 2015

Posted 23 September 2015 3:36pm

The CGGS U15 Division 2 Hockey team scored a convincing win over University Juniors 3-0, placing them on the top of the ladder. 

Congratulations to all girls, Tony Urwin (Coach), Year 12 students Nicola Agnew and Annabelle Willemsen (Assistant Coaches) and Katrina Maguire (Manager).

This is now the second undefeated season for this team with a summer indoor season finishing on top of the ladder and now a winter premiership.

All of our hockey teams have trained very hard through a wet, cold winter and were justifiably rewarded with excellent results.

Along with our U15 Division 2 premiers, our U15 Division 1 and U18 Division 1 teams made it to the semi-finals and our U13 Division 1 just missed out on a semi-final placing coming a creditable 5th.

A very special thank you to all our coaches; Stef Kindon (2010), Sophie Gaughan, Andrew Pope, Tony Urwin, Zac Absalom, Kelby Pointer and assistant coaches and umpires; Annabelle Willemsen (Year 12), Nicola Agnew (Year 12), Natalie Pinder (Year 11) and Genevieve Bowes (Year 11).

Along with our managers Pippa O'Reilly, Katrina Maguire, Jerry O'Sullivan and Scott Bradbury who do an amazing and often unseen job of ensuring the teams are ready to take the field each week and scores are submitted.

To our Hockey Captains; Marieke Jacobs and Victoria Smit who have come out to supported each team, filled in as coaches and umpires, brought some great new initiatives in developing a cohesive atmosphere amongst the teams and have been instrumental in the development of the new combined summer and winter hockey uniform. The new hockey uniform will be required for the summer indoor season and is now available in the School Shop.

Congratulations again to all the U15 Division 2 girls who remained undefeated all season pictured here taking out the minor premiership trophy and winning the Grand Final Premiership trophy: Milly Ashurst, Madeleine Bolton, Georgia Braggett, Ella Caite Campey, Bronte Castle (absent from photo), Grace Dudley, Sarah Gosney, Rachael Hardy, Anjali Hurrell, Caitlin McCabe (absent from photo), Sophie McGlade (absent from photo), Alex McKay, Lucy Preece, Angie Tatt, Chloe Willemsen and Isabel Yeoman.  

And to U13's Reece O'Sullivan and Tyree Senaratne for assisting us greatly by filling in for the grand final game. Thank you!

Finally thank you to parents and all the wonderful hockey players from other teams and injured Caitlin McCabe who came out to support and cheer—the girls appreciated it. CGGS is very proud of you all.
