Hockey plays a big part in the Kingsmill family of Korunye. For sisters Laura (pictured right) and Hanna, they have both represented South Australia, with Laura recently returning from a trip to Western Australia where she played for the state in the senior women’s Australian Country Championships.
Sixteen-year-old Laura was also recently selected to play in the Australian U/21 Country Women’s Hockey team, which will travel to online casino Fiji in December to compete against the Fijian National U21 team and also its senior women’s side.
Hanna, 14, is heading to Bussleton, Western Australia at the end of this month as part of the Under 15 state hockey team to compete in the National Championships.
Hanna and Laura have been supported in their hockey pursuits by their Mum and Dad, Carolyn and Matt, who both played for Two Wells Hockey Club.
District Council of Mallala’s Community Partnerships Funding has also provided support.
These girls are definitely talented and are ones to follow. Congratulations girls.
