Junior selected for state squad trials

JASMINE Fagg is confident of making the Queensland under-15 hockey team after being selected last month for the trials to be held in February next year.

The talented hockey player was picked for the first time and will look to make one of the two teams selected to represent the state at the under-15 nationals in April.

Despite the selection, the Arrows Athletics Hockey Club player said she was stunned by the selection.

"I was pretty excited but also a little surprised to be honest."

"I didn't have a great carnival here in Bundaberg and thought the chance had slipped by."

Currently studying to be a hockey coach, the junior said she wanted to repay the faith shown by the selectors.

"I love hockey and want to coach juniors as I progress into seniors. I'm currently getting my level 1 licence and aim to coach under-11s and under-13s.

"For now though the focus is on getting into the state team.

"People have told me I've got the skills to do well and represent my state.

"I know if I put in the hard work I can make the team."
