Elizabeth Duguid a step closer to selection for Indoor Hockey World Cup

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 onto 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.
