WBHS Hockey

Northland Hockey has announced the inclusion of our WBHS 1st XI hockey team in the Premier Men’s Competition for the 2017 season.

This is another great sporting achievement for the school,as we have never competed in the Northland Premier Mens Competition before.

This is especially pleasing for our school .hockey players who can play for WBHS in the Premier Competition.

It will be a challenging first season but I am sure the team will compete very well.
