On Tuesday, teams from Oban High School and Culloden High School came to Lochaber for a senior girls’ hockey tournament. The format was a 7-a-side, round-robin tournament with each school entering two teams.
Despite the blustery weather, the girls fought hard and levels of enthusiasm were high. Lochaber’s A team won all 5 of their matches, with some impressive score lines, elegant team work and fine on-target shooting.
The running speed, stick skills and commitment of the B team ensured that they also had a successful day, losing only to Lochaber A. A draw with Culloden in their last game meant that second place was shared by the two teams.
The success of both teams is due to the commitment and enthusiasm of team coach Miss MacCallum. Thanks also to Mr Adams and Callum Fraser for refereeing at the tournament, and to Active Schools Coordinator, Bridget Thomas, who helped to pull the day together.
