- A massive well done to the senior hockey team who have recently been in action. On Monday 13th January, they played Simon Balle school and, in very wet and cold conditions, won 6-0. On Monday 20th, they played Parmiters and drew 1-1 after a very close battle! Well done girls – some great hockey!
- The Year 7 and 8 hockey teams played Simon Balle last week. The games were played in an excellent spirit with Presdales showing a high level of commitment and lovely skills throughout. Both teams won comfortably with the Year 7 team running out 10-0 winners and the Year 8 team winning 3-0. Well done girls, great performances!
