2 min read
South London press Decorated former Alleyn's School hockey star Dulcie Davies is making a name for herself more than 5,000 miles from home. The goalkeeper moved to California on a hockey scholarship with Stanford in 2010 and hasn't looked back. The former England U16, U18 and U21 international was recently named defensive player of the year in the NorPac conference. "I wanted to come to the US to play at the highest level possible at the intensity that the US college system brings" Davies said. "I also wanted to receive the highest regarded education that i could, and with FPUSA's scholarship i managed to find that at Stanford" Davies, from East Dulwich is in her third year of a degree in science technology and society. She ranks first in annual saves percentage, conceding one or fewer goals in 17 or 18 games - including seven shutouts. She excels against elite competition, making 33 saves and letting in just five goals in six games against top 20 opponents. The former Surrey Schools hockey captain works tirelessly both on and off the field - she lives the life of a professional athlete with a grueling four-hour training session each day, sandwiched in between almost 10 hours of studying and lectures. "I was presented with the opportunity to have an unforgettable experience whilst playing some great hockey and developing my skills and fitness" the 22 year old said. "It has also enabled me to see and live in an amazing part of the world, develop lifelong friendships and mature as a person. Looking back, i wouldn't have done a thing differently" Davies plans to stay in California as a hockey coach after she graduates in 2016.
