Parkes Hockey Incorporated hosted the Under 13’s State Championships from Thursday July 11 – Sunday July 14 which welcomed 41 teams and 2,000 people each day from Friday to Sunday.
Thursday afternoon Hockey NSW held 2 goal keeper clinics with 35 keepers turning up to learn some new skills and practice before the big weekend ahead.
A disco was held on the Friday night for all the teams at the Parkes Services Club which was highly successful and attracted 150-200 girls with lots of fun, games and sugar.
Parkes entered 3 amazing teams who played their hearts out Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Parkes 3 played in division 5 and Parkes 2 played in division 4. Despite the sometimes freezing conditions, the girls played to an extremely high-standard.
Parkes 1 played in division 2 and made it all the way to the final but unfortunately went down 1-nil to North Coast on Sunday afternoon.
Huge congratulations to Molly Orr who has been selected into the NSW U13 Girls Squad after her impressive performance!
Well done Molly and good luck for the trials in Port Macquarie in two weeks time.
Congratulations also to all the young girls who have been selected in the Under 13 NSW Girls Squad this year.
The Executive committee would like to extend a massive thanks to Parkes Shire Council, Parkes Services Club, Sandvik, MCA, all of our amazing volunteers, clubs, members and parents who contributed to a highly successful weekend in Parkes.
