Talented hockey player Sophie B (Year 10) has had an exceptional season with her club, Norwich Dragons. Her Ladies 3’s Team won the Empresa Norfolk Women’s Hockey League Premier Division this season and will now be promoted into the East Women’s League, and towards the end of the season Sophie also played a number of matches for the Ladies 2’s Team who already play in the East Women’s League and missed out on promotion by a solitary point.
Last Saturday evening at the club’s annual awards at Sprowston Manor, Sophie was voted Ladies 3’s Team Player of the Season by her team mates. A great end to her first season in ladies hockey as part of a fantastic club!
On Sunday Sophie and 15 team mates represented Norfolk in the Girls U15 East Region Hockey Championships at the UEA Sportspark against six other counties. The team and coaches have been together for three seasons now and having won in 2016 and come 2nd in 2017, they prevailed again this year to reclaim the title as 2018 champions. A great result from a talented bunch of hockey players and coaches with huge team spirit, a great will to win and a determination to play for each other.
Well done, Sophie!
