Congratulations to Eliza in Year 7 who had the opportunity to represent Victoria at the National Under 13's Hockey Championships this year.
As a member of the Victorian team, Eliza in Year 7 competed at the National U13’s Hockey Championships in Hobart this year. It was a tough tournament with 11 hard-fought, nail-biting games in just eight days. Eliza was regularly acknowledged by opposition coaches for her fearless running into the direct line of fire from opposition forwards during short corners, as well as her ‘elite’ defensive pressure.
‘I learnt a lot about myself and the game of hockey and most importantly I learnt about handling pressure and building resilience. Overall it was a lot of fun and I look forward to doing it again,’ said Eliza.
