Nathan, a Year 7 student at La Salle Academy, has been playing hockey since he was three years old. 

It is a whole family affair, with dad David Marshall coaching the Panther’s women’s team in 2018. 

It is not Nathan’s first representative hit out. He was selected to represent NSW CCC (Combined Catholic Colleges) while a student at St Patrick’s Primary School last year. 

Nathan trains with his father and said he would be concentrating on gaining more speed in the level up to the nationals. 

Good luck, Nathan!
