Tournament hockey success

1st X1

Over Winter Tournament week our Dio 1st XI Hockey team competed at the Federation Cup in Hawkes Bay, for the Top 32 Teams in the country.

The girls had a great week of hockey winning 4 games, drawing 2 games & losing one game to a strong Wellington College. Highlights were a 6-1 win over St Kentigern College, a 4-1 win over St Paul’s and taking Villa Maria to a sudden death shootout after coming back from being down 2-0 at half time. Well done to the team for preserving throughout the week and finishing 11th out of 32. Thank you to our 10 Year 13s, who set a wonderful example to all our junior players across the program the entire season. Thank you for your contribution to Dio Hockey!

2nd X1 

The 2nd XI Hockey team headed to Taupo to compete in the Chris Arthur Cup. The week was a huge success with the team winning the first 4 games making it straight into the semifinals. A tough game against Rangi Ruru meant they narrowly missed out playing for 1st and 2nd. Finishing top 4 overall was a tremendous feat for the Diocesan 2nd XI, the highest Diocesan Hockey has placed in this tournament in over 10 years. Congratulations to the 3-year 13s for all their hard work and leadership, we wish you all the best!
