Cowichan Secondary raises field hockey banner

The provincial AAA field hockey champion Cowichan Thunderbirds unveiled their title banner last Thursday.

The two-time defending provincial AAA field hockey champion Cowichan Secondary School Thunderbirds unveiled their title banner last Thursday between halves of a senior boys basketball game.

The banner was revealed in its rightful place high on the wall of the school gym, next to the banner earned by the same team a year earlier.

The 2016 Thunderbirds captured this year’s championship with a 1-0 win over the Kelowna Owls in the provincial final in Surrey. This is the second time a Cowichan team has won back-to-back provincial field hockey titles since 2002 and 2003.

Back row from left: Caitlin Evans (coach), Hanna Murray, Jillian Wallace, Sara Goodman, Robin Fleming, Jenna Berard, Ashton Aumen, Melanie Robertson, Jenna Goodman, Anya Hermant, Perri Espeseth (Coach).

Front row from left: Birkley Anderson, Emma Dame, Makayla Styba, Kyla Birch, Samantha Ross, Cloe Langkammer, Reese Nagy.

Missing: Lexi Anderson, Angela Ramwell, Jenna Howard.
