1st TEAM HOCKEY – St Mary’s Waverley Tournament 

Our Lady of Fatima first team hockey participated in the prestigious St Mary Waverley tournament from the 3rd to 7th April.

The team had a fantastic build up to this tournament and stepped onto the field on day one feeling confident and ready to play out of their boots.

The team started with a bang and secured a win verse a very competitive Collegiate team. As the weekend progressed, the results ebbed and flowed, but one thing remained constant: the style and brand of hockey that the Fatima team displayed in each game.

We proved that even though we are a small school, we are a force to be reckoned with. The girls did themselves and the school proud, finishing a confident 26th overall.

This tournament is always a fantastic way for us to prepare for our upcoming season, and we eagerly anticipate what we can achieve in the season ahead.
