Olympian’s of the future?

Camberwell’s Laura Braakhuis and Saskia Hollenkamp were recently named in the Victorian Under 18 Women’s State Team to contest the 2019 National Championship in Perth.

A few days later the news came through that the International Olympic Committee had given lacrosse provisional Olympic status and a pathway to inclusion in the Olympic Games. The target is the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics.

That timing would coincide with a number of Camberwell’s promising young women and men players being in their prime years. The tantalizing question to ponder is, not if, but who will become Camberwell’s first-ever Olympian?
