Hockey Stars Selected for National Representation
Sophie Skelton and Maeve Macdonald (both Y11) have qualified for the U16 National Hockey Tournament as part of the Leicester Ladies team.
The girls will represent the U16s against the many other talented clubs competing at the spectacular Lee Valley during the Easter Holidays. The tournament will provide an opportunity for the girls to gain invaluable experience and it is a great reward for all of their hard work and progress in recent seasons.
Both girls have been heavily involved with SHS 1st XI during an incredibly successful season and continue to train at Leicester Ladies Hockey Club (recently registered with the 1st team) and at NAGS (National Age Group Squads).
Head of Girls Sport at Stamford High School Maria Higgins, commented, “I would like to personally wish the girls the best of luck at the National tournament and look forward to hearing all about it. I know they will relish every moment of the tournament.”
