The Men’s Hockey team at The Sixth Form College, Solihull, are celebrating after winning the BCS League with an unbeaten record this season.
The British Colleges and Schools League saw them up against local rivals from Hereford and King Edwards Stourbridge, amongst others. Their season finished with a recent 4-2 success over King Edward’s Stratford.
Sandra Rowland, Hockey Coach at the College, said: “We are very proud of the boys who have enjoyed an outstanding season. The omens were good in pre-season when we defeated a team from Solihull School, something we have never done before.
“We are now turning all our attention to the Mixed Hockey team, who also have the opportunity to win their league. They have three games left and are currently top of the league, so we are hoping they can maintain their excellent form until the end of the season.”
Those final three matches see them taking on Worcester, Warwickshire College and King Edward’s Nuneaton. If they win all three games, they are assured of matching the Men’s team and being crowned as champions.
In both the Men’s and Mixed teams, every player has contributed. However, special recognition is due to the captain of both teams, Jacques Priestner, who has also done hockey as part of his A level Physical Education course. Sam Plummer also deserves special praise for tending goal for both the Men’s and Mixed teams.
