King's High Sports Team of the Year – The Shortlist
King's High Sports Team of the Year, 2021-2022 – The Shortlist: Under 13 Hockey
Every year at our Sports Awards Evening, we announce the Sports Team of the Year. This award is usually decided by King’s High’s Sports Department. This year, however, there have been so many outstanding achievements, the PE department have had to draw up a shortlist, and extend it to a school vote! As Director of Sport, Sarah Parkinson-Mills put it: ‘Think BBC Sports Personality of the Year - only more important!’
We are celebrating all six teams on the shortlist, and today is the turn of:
Under 13 Hockey
The U13 Hockey team (which includes three Year 7 pupils) performed unbelievably well this year, winning the national Independent Schools Plate final. In a well contested final they beat a strong Wimbledon team 2-1 as well as chalking up some fantastic results against strong opposition, including Queens School and Cheadle Hulme. This is the first time that a team from King's has won the ISHC National Plate.
