The Meadows hockey team have had a very successful few weeks. In January we won the Kings Norton sports association schools hockey tournament held at Colmers Leisure Centre.
West Heath, St.Laurence and Kings Norton were the other schools competing and we managed to defeat them all on the way to being crowned Champions!
Then on Tuesday 9th February, we went to the Futsal Arena to compete in the Birmingham Winter Games. We were against 10 other schools from across the city. We secured 3 wins and 2 draws in the group stages, ensuring we topped the group. In a close semi-final, we beat Tiverton 1-0 meaning we would face Whitehouse Common from Sutton Coldfield in the Grand Final. They were a very strong school and unfortunately we lost the game 0-3.
It was an amazing achievement to make the final however, and be crowned the 2nd best hockey team in Birmingham! Congratulations to Hannah, Isobel, Lewis, Jack, Archie and Seth who did themselves and the school proud.
