Grand finals set for Warwick hockey
THE Warwick Hockey Association has tentatively set down September 11 for junior and senior grand final.
The grand finals are being scheduled on a Sunday as association officials hope the Warwick women's A3 team qualifies for the grand final in Toowoomba on September 10.
The senior teams will play a round robin on grand final day after the end of junior finals and presentations.
Junior co-ordinator Phil Rolfe said junior numbers were up on last year despite the lack of a synthetic surface due to the floods.
“Senior numbers are definitely back in Warwick club hockey but three teams are playing in Toowoomba,” Rolfe said.
“We have had more representative teams this year than any time in the past six years.”

SEVEN Warwick players are in the Past High A2 women's team playing in Sunday's President's Cup final against Red Lion in the Toowoomba Hockey Association.

The seven are Past High captain/right inner Toni Cox, vice-captain/centre half Bonita Tyler, fullback Jodie Olsen, centre forward Brianna Miller, goalie Kerri Fitch, right wing Bianca Fitch and right half Rachael Inmon. All Toowoomba President's Cup finals, except the veterans, will be played on Sunday at Clyde Park in Toowoomba.
