REPRESENTING his school on the national stage has earned St Mary’s Primary School Year 6 student Tyler McCann state recognition for his efforts on the hockey field.

Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall was pleased to have the opportunity to present Jake with a NSW Government State Representative Certificate at a St Mary’s Primary School assembly in Armidale last Friday afternoon.

The defensive midfielder played in the boy’s hockey NSW side at the National All Schools Primary Championships in Cairns, held in August. The team finished in the medals, taking home bronze for the state.

“This is a wonderful achievement by Tyler and it’s a great honour to represent your home state in any discipline,” Mr Marshall said.

“While his success on the hockey field is no doubt due to talent, competition at this level also requires a high degree of persistence, patience and practice – all wonderful traits to have at any stage of your life.

“Tyler follows in the footsteps of his older brother Jake, who also represented NSW at the national championships.”

Mr Marshall said the NSW Government State Representative Award certificate was presented on behalf of the NSW Government by the Premier and local members to acknowledge people in our communities that strive and achieve extraordinary results.

“I’m sure that we will be reading and hearing a lot more about the sporting prowess of Armidale’s Tyler McCann for years to come,” Mr Marshall said.
