Field hockey team finishes in eighth place

The Summerland Secondary School Girls’ Field Hockey team has returned from a successful provincial tournament.

The Summerland Secondary School Girls’ Field Hockey team has returned from a successful provincial tournament. The girls qualified second in the valley and went into provincials in 12th position.

With some outstanding play, they finished provincials in eighth place. The entire team was responsible for excellent play as well as sportsmanship.

Other teams and parents approached Summerland coach Katy Clarke and parents to comment on the girls’ work ethic and apparent enjoyment of the game.

Summerland Secondary School was the only team to score a goal on the provincial champions, Shawnigan Lake.

The Summerland Secondary School program has been growing over the years, with athletes being successful outside the school program as well.

Last year’s grad Allyssa Hooper is currently a starting member of the McGill Martlets Field Hockey team in Quebec. Shannon Clarke, a current Grade 10 player, plays with a team from California and is heading off to the US National Festival to play for the California Wargles in two weeks.

A few players have gone on to enjoy the B.C. Summer Games, as well as the U16 and U18 High Performance Regional teams.

This season in tournament and league play up to the provincials the girls had 11 wins, four ties and two losses.
