ABOUT Bass Coast Hearing’s receptionist, Megan Anderson, is heading to the United States for a four year field hockey scholarship after recent success at the National Under 21 Hockey Championships in Hobart.
Megan, 18, has represented Victoria in 10 campaigns.
This year the Victorian team successfully defeated New South Wales in the grand final 3-2 to win the gold medal.
“This was by far the most exciting tournament for me as it was the most successful team I have been involved with,” Megan said.
The Victorian side finished top of the ladder after a crushing 6-2 win over South Australia followed up the next day by a hard fought performance against a strong Queensland outfit.
The final pool game was a grinding 2-1 win over New South Wales.
Victoria played off against Western Australia in the battle to play off in the Grand Final.
Victoria scored an impressive 21 goals in six games (one by Megan) and were penalised the least number of cards.
This victory was the first for the Victorian U21 team in six years.
Next week Megan will journey to the United States to attend Wake Forest University in North Carolina where she will study science after being awarded a full four year Field Hockey scholarship.
Megan thanks her family for their continued support as she pursues the fantastic opportunities available.
Megan has been working for her grandmother, Rhonda Bennett, at About Bass Coast Hearing since completing her VCE last year.
“I have really enjoyed meeting all of the lovely and friendly customers and look forward to coming back during my mid-year break.”
