Left winger has fun with Warwick team in carnival
HOCKEY: Jack Hollist has been on the left wing for the Warwick under-15 hockey team which has played in this year's state championships at Queens Park.
Jack's mother is Kylie Hollist (nee Gillam) who played hockey in Warwick and Darling Downs schoolgirls before moving to Toowoomba.
The Gillam family have been involved in Warwick hockey for 50 years and Jack's grandfather Darryl Gillam is a long-time groundsman and was the inaugural winner of the Condamine Sports Club Volunteer of the Year award.
Jack plays club hockey in Toowoomba for Rangeville and joined up with Warwick to play in his first state championships in the past four days.
"I really enjoy playing with Warwick and all the boys have welcomed me to the team,” Jack said.
He plays fullback in club hockey and has enjoyed the opportunity to play on a wing for Warwick.
Jack competes at state and national level in multi-class swimming and trains at Flyers Swimming Club at the Harristown State High School Pool.
