Over 30% of U18 teams made up of athletes with links to MX

With the first term of 2019 done and dusted, we thought now was a good chance to acknowledge some recent achievements across the MX community.

MX coaches, Estelle Macadre and Georgie Peterson have both been selected in the Capital U21 women’s side that will travel to North Harbour to compete for a national title in May. A familiar environment for Estelle who has represented Capital at U21 level before but new territory for Georgie who has only recently graduated from U18 level. 

Another MX coach, Lochie Paton, will again represent Capital at U21 tournament. After debuting at National League level last year, Lochie will be looking to make an impact and lead this year’s group. 

The Capital and Wellington U18 squads have also been announced and there are MX connections across the board. 

In the Capital U18 women’s side, 7 out of the 19 players have attended MX sessions at various stages. Long time MX athlete, Ruby Baker is among those who will don the Capital jersey. In the Wellington team, 10 of the young women selected, have experienced the MX environment. Current members Amy and Emily Singer, Eleanor White, Ida Braun and Nina Simmonds have all been named in the group. 

Judd Adamson is the lone MX member in the Capital U18 men’s team, an impressive feat given Judd was playing U15 hockey just last year. Will Collins and Hamish Nicholls have also been named in the Wellington team and round out the strong MX representation across the U18 age group. 

At MX we have a lot of fun and athletes enjoy the difference we offer and the challenge it brings. Not only is the environment unique, it delivers results. 20 athletes with links to MX will represent Capital or Wellington at U18 level this year, numbers that speak for themselves.
