Oakham Hockey has seen a victorious term with the U13 Girls reaching the National Finals and the U12 Girls as well as the U12 and U13 Boys teams reaching the Regional Finals.
The U14 Boys also did magnificently finishing runners-up in the Regional Finals and will now play Ipswich School early next term for a place at the National Finals.
The U14 Boys teams have fully embraced participation and success with virtually every boy in the year representing the School across multiple Saturdays. The U14B team were the pick of the year group completing the entire season unbeaten.
At senior level the 1st XI squad had another successful season, playing across two league competitions following a restructure of the National competition. The team finished second in their National League, including most notably a superb victory against Repton.
The 1st XI also celebrated success in the Independent Schools Hockey League with a superb 10-0 victory against Trent in the first match of the season. This set the tone for the term with the team going undefeated in the League, beating Oundle, Repton and setting up a final winner takes all game against Stamford. With both Stamford and Oakham level on points, it was a straight shootout to see who would claim the title. Having trailed 2-0 for the entire game, the boys scored 3 goals in 5 minutes to win the game and not only secured the League title but also extended their impressive unbeaten home run to 3 years.
