Amelie (Shield - 2016) continues to excel playing hockey across the world. Since leaving the College, Amelie has been travelling to play hockey in many different countries. After leaving Hurst, she took a gap year and spent a season in The Netherlands and Argentina where she played for top clubs in both countries. Amelie thoroughly enjoyed her time away and felt she developed many aspects of her game. Following this, she continued her travels to the USA, where she studied at the University of Massachusetts whilst playing division I hockey for UMass. Most recently, Amelie has spent 2 seasons in Melbourne, Australia, playing in the Victorian Premier League. Her club reached the semi-final in both the 2023 and 2024 seasons. Following an impressive two seasons, she has been selected to represent the Hockey Club Melbourne squad who compete in the 'Hockey One' franchise league. 'Hockey One' is a new franchise in its third year, with one team from each of the 7 states in Australia. This is a great opportunity for Amelie to showcase her talent, as well as play against some top level international players coming from across the globe to play in the franchise. Amelie and Hockey Club Melbourne will be looking to go one better than their 2022 season where they finished second.
Amelie played for the girl's first XI for hockey during her time at Hurst and was later supported by the OJ Fund which helped fund her travels. The fund continues to support current and past pupils reach their sporting potential.
