A great effort by all players at the Geelong U13 Carnival on Sunday July 20.
The Carnival pitted teams made up of players from clubs within Hockey Geelong against teams from regional Victoria. Both Hockey Geelong teams did very well with only one loss between them for the entire carnival. Overall it was a very enjoyable day for the players and their families.
Geelong A finished in second place with a silver medal, coming up against the eventual winners of the Carnival, Glenelg, in the last match. Congratulations to our Club members who were part of this team:
- Caleb Barnett, Tom Charleson, Josh D’Arcy, Lachie D’Arcy, Matthew Horne, Tom Mahon, Jonah McKinnon, Erin Skene, Chloe Smith and Emily West.
