ACT School Sports Representatives

It has been a busy year for Central Juniors and their School representative hockey.

August 3-8th saw Central Juniors Hayley Manning, Kira O’Connor, Madeline Dooley and Charlotte Mason travel to Hobart to represent ACT PSSA girls. The girls side was coached by Central stalwart and CL1 Co-Captain, Kate Dooley. Aiden Dooley was the sole Central representative in the boys ACT PSSA.

As the PSSA Australian championships came to a close the U16 Australian Schoolgirls were getting ready to warm up. Central had 6 representatives in the ACT U16 Schoolgirls team who traveled to Adelaide to compete between from 9th-16th of August.

Whilst the girls didn’t have any wins (or goals), they had a great attitude and were used by other states’ coaches as a demonstration about staying positive. They showed significant improvement during the week-long carnival and it was reported that they were a pleasure to watch. The six Central representatives were Isabel Burkett-Roscoe (15/1s), Sophie Woodbridge (15/1s and CL1/2), Abbey Connell (15/1s), Sam Howitt (18/1s and CL2), Evelyn Pappas (18/2s) & Viv Schweizer (SL1).
