Hockey Winners!

Posted on : January 23, 2020

Well done to our Senior A Girls Hockey Team who emerged as winners in the Halliday League against Salerno Secondary School, Galway. Having lost no matches all season the team met Salerno on Friday 17th January at home in SGS. In what was a tense final, with Salerno receiving a short corner early in the game, the SGS girls managed to successfully hold the opposition off, with goals from Saoirse Gillmor and Lara Swann. Despite the freezing conditions the senior school turned out in force to support the girls and the final score was 2 – 0 to the Grammar School. What a great way to end their school hockey career for 6th years Imogen Wray and Erin Nielsen (captain)! Some photos are on the Hockey page.
