Waihi College Inline Hockey Team On A Roll

Waihi College Inline Hockey team headed to New Plymouth last weekend for a tournament playing against teams from Manawatu, Wellington, Hamilton, New Plymouth and Horowhenua.

They had several games on both days and despite having the smallest team members came fourth overall.

Waihi’s team included boys and girls, their ages ranging from 9 to 13 for the tournament, with Declan Coxon the youngest participant at just 8 happily holding his own against some of the bigger players.

There was a bit of rough and tumble to navigate during the tournament with a few injuries to nurse this week.

Parent helper Aaron Coxon said the experience was well worth it and the team can hold their heads up high with some great results.

All the players learnt a lot from the tournament and represented Waihi College with pride.
