National Honours For MX Mates

This is the last time we’re writing an article about Lochie and Estelle’s achievements on the hockey turf.

Until we do it again.

We just can’t help ourselves and when the accolades are coming in thick and fast, it would be rude not to acknowledge the efforts of two MX coaches who are fast becoming two tidy hockey players and not to mention good mates.

Last week, both Lochie and Estelle were named in the U21 New Zealand squads after impressive performances in North Harbour. Great reward for two players who have put in a lot of behind the scenes work over the last two seasons.

We would also like to congratulate the other Capital players who made the cut. Julia Gluyas and Jess Kelly were both included in the women’s squad as well as Ruby Logan, the shining light of the Logan family. On the men’s side, Jordan Cohen and Sajan Patel were included in the 30. We’re a little confused that only three Capital men were picked seeing as the Cobras took out gold but that’s a yarn for another day.

Congratulations to all seven Capital players who made it, enjoy the moment when it comes and let it be the start of something bigger.
