There are eight hockey teams representing St Angela’s College this year in various leagues and Cups.
In first year there is an A team two B teams and a C team. We are lucky to have such enthusiastic first years this year and there happens to be many very talented players among the group. There is one team representing the second years this year. There is also a Junior B team, a senior C team and Senior B team.
The captains of the Senior B team are our Head girl Rachel Foley who recently Represented Munster under 18’s in the Interprovincial’s in October 2014. Our other Captain is Orlaith Nation who is another very experienced and talented player. We are so lucky to have them as they are great leaders for the team. As a B team, we did extremely well in our first round of the Senior cup when we beat an A team in a tense penalty shootout. Unfortunately we were not so lucky in the second round and were beaten by a top A hockey school, Ursuline’s Thurles. This brought no disappointment to us as we are now back in our comfort zone with a good shot in the B cup.
Huge congratulations to the Senior B Goalie Hannah Humphries who has done us proud by making the Irish under 16 training Panel. We are more than lucky to have her!
Our coaches are Kate Humphries, Jessica Higginbotham and Alan good. We are very grateful to have such committed and talented coaches.
We would like to wish all our teams best of luck with the rest of the season.
