Scotch Duo a Goal Scoring Force

Written on the 8 July 2015

Scotch duo Erin Cameron and Hattie Shand hope to power SA's attack at next month's School Sports Australia Under-16 Hockey Championships.

The teenagers have been selected in the 16-member girls' squad heading to Perth for the eight-day event. Erin and Hattie will aim to reproduce the form that helped them combine for 15 of SA's 26 goals at the Under-15 Girls Australian Championship in April.

Hattie, 15, captained SA and led all scorers at the Gold Coast event with 12 goals.

"I had a really strong tournament," says Hattie, who boards at Scotch.

"I played striker at that tournament but I normally play midfield.

"We won five games and lost only one, which is a really big achievement for SA."

Hattie, who started playing hockey when she was 10, expects to return to playing midfield at the Perth event and has her sights on the green and gold.

"From this tournament, I'd really like to get selected in the Australian under-16 squad, and then maybe the Olympics when I am a bit older."

Her Adelaide Hockey Club teammate, Erin, 15, also hopes the event will act as a launchpad to higher representative honours.

"I want to continue to make state teams and hopefully one day play for the Suns, Adelaide's (national league) team, and hopefully Australia one day," Erin, of Mitcham, says.

"I represented the state in under-12s and then was in the under-15 tournament earlier this year. It's really exciting representing SA."

The Secondary School Championships run from August 1-8.
