Monday, 09 December 2019
VIS’ Aisling Utri led the U21 Australian Jillaroos hockey team to an equal first finish in a tri-series tournament in Canberra last week.
Fellow VIS athlete Carly James was also a key member of the side.
The Jillaroos coached by VIS Head Coach, Stacia Strain, finished with two wins, a draw and a loss.
The tri-series, which included India and New Zealand, saw a mix of results which meant for an equal first finish for the Jillaroos side.
Utri was instrumental throughout the tournament with two goals across four games and says that the tournament has been a great learning experience.
“The experience of playing quality international teams has been great. We’ve been learning a lot as individuals and as a team,” she said.
