Mullumbimby High School student Harley Crossley has been selected in the Queensland U/13 boys hockey team to play in the national championships.

Harley’s weekend club, the Burringbar Waratahs, is part of Hockey Queensland, giving him the opportunity to represent both states. Harley is one of a lineage of great goalies produced by the Waratahs club, mum Trish Crossley said.

‘He is looking forward to seeing his NSW teammates in Hobart and testing himself against the best in Australia,’ she said.
