A group of talented boys’ hockey players at Rydal Penrhos have been rewarded for their exceptional efforts with end of season awards.
The department has enjoyed another campaign of immense success thanks to the sterling work being done by Head of Boys’ Hockey Phil Mather and young coach Dan Rippon.
Freddie James produced a number of consistent performances to come away with the Year 7 Play of the Year honour, while Llion Morris was the recipient of the Most Improved distinction as a result of his outstanding progress.
Year 8’s Player of the Year was presented to Jacob Cousins, with Dominic Vos was also recognised with the Most Improved from the category.
Baptise Mazars is another that has shone during the campaign and he was acknowledged with the Year 9 Player of the Year Award, and the enthusiasm of Ben Davies saw him come away with the Most Improved honour.
Nothing could separate George Smith-Edwards and Zach Speakman, who were presented with the joint-Year 10 Player of the Year, and rounding off the achievements was Jasper Richardson, who scooped the Most Improved award for the same year group.
Each winner received their respective awards from Head of Middle School John Murphy at Rydal Penrhos’ End of Term Prizegiving prior to the Easter break.
Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “It was another fantastic boys’ hockey season across all year groups, and congratulations to everyone that managed to secure awards for their brilliant contribution.
“You can see just how much they are progressing thanks to the hard work of Mr Mather and Mr Rippon, and hopefully this fine success can continue long into the future.”
