Hockey at Richard Huish College has enjoyed a successful term with 55 students across Women’s, Men’s and mixed teams, attending training and representing the College in competitive fixtures.
All teams have experienced great success so far this year with the Women’s 1st team currently at the quarter-final stage of the Colleges Cup after an impressive win away against Hereford College.
Men’s 1st team and mixed 1st team are also still in the Colleges Cup following victories against Truro College.
The mixed 1st team have enjoyed a fantastic run in the AoC regionals competition where they beat both Exeter College and Truro College earning them a welcome return to the National Finals which will be held in Nottingham in April 2023.
On top of the vast team success, there has been individual successes for four students who have been selected for the AoC England Colleges team after successful trials. Second-year students Millie Aspden and Alec Evans return to the squad after playing last season. Joining them are first-year students Nel Woodgate-Jones and Natalie Carillo. Additionally, first-year student Vincent Yates is on the non-travelling reserves list.
The students will compete in the British Colleges fixtures against Wales and Scotland and will also attend training camps with games against university sides. A huge congratulations to all students participating.
