Casey Crowley is only 15, but playing against older girls and ladies is becoming old hat.
Being on the national champion U18 B.C. Blue girls’ field hockey side was just another step in the development process for the Shawnigan Lake School student.
Crowley could have still played with the U15 provincial side.
“Moving up, it’s a faster pace so being up there, it will pick up my game and I’ll hopefully increase my skills,’’ she said.
Crowley is also entering her second season with the Island Wildcats.
“It’s a Premier team,’’ she explained. “Ali Lee started it in Victoria and we’re playing some Vancouver teams so it’s stepping up the island field hockey program. It’s good to play with the older girls.’’
On top of that, Crowley will also be starting up with the Shawnigan Lake School girls’ team soon.
“We only had four Grade 12s last year,’’ she said. “We had a pretty strong team in Grade 10 so it’s going to be the same team effectively this year so we should do OK.’’
Crowley’s dad Kieran coaches the national men’s rugby team.
“He comes to a few games,’’ said Crowley. “He doesn’t mind that we’re playing hockey.’’
