"The year 3 & 4 quick sticks hockey tournament on Wednesday 9th March atWollaston school was very well attended. There were 14 teams from 7 different local primary schools. Due to the number of teams entering the tournament, we decided to run it as two separate competitions with 7 teams in each. To avoid teams moving to much we ran one competition on Wollaston schools top Astro and one on the bottom Astro. We had over 20 young leaders from the Wollaston schools sports leadership academy supporting the tournament. The experienced year 9 sports leaders took charge, with one leader working with each primary school. The year 7 & 8 leaders were attending their first tournament, so were shown the ropes by the older leaders. With 6 hockey pitches in use each round, we had 12 teams playing all the time and 2 teams resting each rotation. The level of commitment and enjoyment from the pupils was brilliant to see and the standard of play was a credit to the teachers that have been coaching the students in lessons. All matches we refereed by the Wollaston sports leaders. The Sports leaders also helped primary staff run teams making sure they got to the pitches on time. After one and a half hours of hockey there was little to separate the teams. The tournaments results are bellow. Tournament 1 Denton A 17 Yardley Hastings 15 Irchester A 13 Cogenhoe 13 Grendon B 10 Bozeat B 10 Little Houghton B 6 Tournament 2 Irchester B 17 Denton B 16 Cogenhoe B 14 Bozeat A 13 Bozeat C 12 Grendon A 12 Little Houghton A 10"
