CLARICE SOLOMON (12) is the recipient of the SuperSport Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month award for Express for her achievements in hockey.

Clarice forms part of the u.13 Eunice High School girls’ team that has done exceptionally well in tournaments this year.

She was part of the team that competed at the recent All-Girls Festival in Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape during April. Clarice has been included in the Southern Free State girls’ u.13 hockey team to compete at this year’s inter-provincial tournament in Potchefstroom from 26 until 30 June. She also plays for the Elsie Coetzer Hockey School and was selected for the u.14 girls’ team set to tour the Netherlands in the upcoming September holidays.

Clarice was also part of the team that participated in the 2015 Pietie Coetzee Hockey Tournament hosted by the Oranje Girls’ School, helping steer her team to a 3-0 win over Oranje in the final. She was rewarded with the player of the tournament award for girls u.13 and was also honoured as Eunice’s u.13 hockey player for 2015. Another achievement in 2015 was her inclusion in the Southern Free State team that competed at the u.13 interprovincial tournament in Pietermaritzburg during the winter holidays. Clarice was part of the Eunice u.13 hockey team that also won the 2015 Champ of Champs Tournament held in Potchefstroom. They fought back gallantly from 2-0 to level the score line and ultimately won on penalties.

Her motto is the words of the legendary American sportswoman Mia Hamm: “Somewhere behind the athlete you’ve become and the hours of practice and the coaches who have pushed you, is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back . . . play for her.”
