Young hockey stars ready for the national stage
After starring at the U13 National Hockey Championships, J5 pupil Holly has been selected to join the UK Lions squad for 2017-2018.

Holly was one of three St Olave’s pupils (pictured above) chosen to represent the North East team who won last week’s National Championships. Following a thrilling final against the North West side, which went down to shuffles, Holly was picked as one of four girls from the winning team to join the 24 girl national squad.

The UK Lions squad travels the country, using top facilities and playing at notable venues against teams from other countries, with a tour to Sardinia planned in December.
