8th annual Ivan Laing Hockey Match

On Wednesday 27 April 2016 the 8th annual Ivan Laing Hockey Match took place.

A good crowd attended and once again Hawick High School were delighted to have Sandy Laing on hand to present the Hawick Archaeological Society trophy (beautifully made in hawthorn wood and silver by Hamish Smith) to the winning team, led by S6 pupils Hollie Hamilton and Lauren Grant.

HHS History teacher Mrs Riddell introduced HAS President Mr Taylor who made a speech reminding the teams of why it is important to remember lives like Ivan’s which are cut short all too soon.

The match started off evenly but after the first goal went to the Girls, the writing was on the wall and they ended up worth 5-0 winners. The series now stands at 5-3 for the Boys.
