MANNING Hockey Association looks set to again host a State championship in 2020.
This follows the success of the NSW under 18 girl's titles held over three days at Taree Recreation Centre.
A total of 28 teams played in three divisions, with Manning's No 1 side beaten 1-0 in the division two final by Nepean. Illawarra South Coast emerged as champions in division one.
Manning's three synthetic surface fields were all in use for the championship.
Manning Hockey president Debbie Monck confirmed the association has again applied to hold a championship next year and she's confident they will be successful.
"The feedback we received from Hockey NSW and all the visiting teams and officials was all positive,'' Debbie said.
She also thanked the efforts of volunteers from the Manning hockey clubs and others, who she said contributed to the success of the event.
As was the case in 2018, Manning fell at the last hurdle in the NSW under 18 girl's division two hockey championship.
After winning five games en-route to the final Manning lost an engrossing struggle 1-0 to Nepean, despite holding a territorial advantage for much of the contest.
