Congratulations Archie – NSW All Schools Hockey Championships

As we know Archie qualified as the youngest player to make the Polding Team. He is 9 and played against kids who were 11 and 12 – much bigger, stronger and with experience that comes with age. In saying that, Archie had an amazing experience. His team had 3 wins and 3 losses. This sent them to a playoff for 7th against Sydney North which they won. Archie scored 3 of the team’s 8 goals including 1 on his birthday!!! He made lots of new friends, learnt alot and enjoyed the challenge of being tackled by boys nearly twice his size. Archie loved that his class and teacher Mrs Jones tuned in on the livestream and got to watch him play and score 2 goals.

Congratulations Archie! St Mary’s is so proud of you!!
