Duguid makes it to in­door squad

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Work Place -

NED­LANDS in­door hockey player El­iz­a­beth Duguid is one step closer to rep­re­sent­ing Aus­tralia at the 2018 In­door Hockey World Cup af­ter be­ing se­lected for the 2016 Aus­tralian Women’s In­door Hockey Squad.

The 24-year-old was se­lected af­ter play­ing in a na­tional in­door tour­na­ment in Jan­uary.

Duguid started play­ing hockey as a nine-year-old, but only started play­ing the in­door sport late last year.

She said she was sur­prised to make it on to the squad af­ter such a short time play­ing in­door hockey.

“I was very sur­prised and shocked to be se­lected, but very ex­cited to what op­por­tu­ni­ties be­ing on the squad will open up,” she said.

“It’s very ex­cit­ing that I’ve only just started play­ing in­door hockey, and could pos­si­bly be se­lected to play in the World Cup.

“I’ve al­ways wanted to rep­re­sent my coun­try, so if it hap­pens it will be amaz­ing.”

Duguid is one of 28 women se­lected around Aus­tralia for the squad, which will be part of the se­lec­tion process for the 2018 In­door Hockey World Cup.
