Orange's Sir Neville Howse Stadium hosted the Hockey NSW Under 13s Indoor State Championships for the very first time and the four-day tournament - from Friday to Monday - was an undeniable success, in every sense of the word.
While the hosts weren't able to win any boys' or girls' state titles on home turf, they certainly didn't disgrace themselves.
Orange's division two girls finished second while the division two boys made a semi-final appearance, development sides in division three of each gender also performing outstandingly.
Goulburn had an excellent weekend, winning the division one and three girls' titles, while Bathurst managed to bring the boys' division three title to the central west.
