Home Town/State: Gerringong, NSW
Debut: 18/1/2016 v Germany @ Singapore
Grace Stewart had an amazing year in 2016. Named in the National Development Squad, she made an early debut for the Hockeyroos at the TPG International Series in Singapore in January.
Stewart’s performances impressed so much that she continued to get selected for teams, next up was the Great Britain Series in Perth, followed by the China Test in Perth, the Hawke’s Bay Cup in New Zealand and the International Hockey Open in Darwin.
Grace then went on to selection for her first major international – the Champions Trophy in London. Much to her own disbelief, the Gerringong product was then selected to compete in her debut Olympic Games, in the same year as her international debut for the Hockeyroos. Cites Casey Sablowski and Brooke Peris as her heroes.
