14 Jul Gladstone Hockey Association Hosts State Championships
The Gladstone Hockey Association has recently hosted the U13 Chemist Warehouse Boys State Championship.
Despite a weekend of cold and wet weather, the Hockey State Championship went ahead on the fields here in Gladstone. The Queensland-wide championship is held in a different town each year, and this year was Gladstone’s turn- with 23 teams in attendance from all over the state.
There were teams from as far North as Cairns, all the way down to the Gold Coast. A Rockhampton team took out Division One, and a team from Warwick was Division Two. Gladstone’s only U13 Boys Team also competed.
Due to a weekend of wild weather, the rain after the first day meant that games were a shorter playing time, and were played on turf instead of the grass fields. Despite the circumstances, everything ran smoothly, especially with the support of Hockey Queensland Representatives.
