The 14-year-old is part of the team that will travel to Kuala Lumpur in March to compete in the IIHF ice hockey women’s challenge cup Asia tournament. They will face Thailand, Singapore and a Chinese Taipei team. She played a crucial role in the under-18 team last year that won the International Ice Hockey Federation Challenge Cup of Asia after going through the tournament undefeated. Brooke’s father, Howard, said she is a pure, clean player who doesn’t mind “the hits” but she really enjoys just playing the game. She plays defence for the Canterbury Minors Ice Hockey club in the midget grade and in the senior Canterbury women’s team.

Other Canterbury players included in the side are Burnside High’s Phoebe Thompson, Alyssa Murphy and Katelyn Heyrick; St Andrew’s Ellie Dugdale; Marian College’s Millicent Smith and Shirley Boys’ High’s fill-in goalie Lilly Forbes.
