Former Sports Scholar named Outstanding Sportswoman of the Year

09 June 2021 | Students News

Lincoln’s proud sporting legacy was further strengthened with the naming of former Sports Scholar, and current national hockey representative, Olivia Merry, as Crombie Lockwood Outstanding Sportswoman

Olivia, who has been New Zealand Black Sticks Women's Player of the Year for the last two seasons, and is their highest ever goal scorer, triumphed over a strong field to win the title.

The 29-year-old edged Taxtic captain (and another former Lincoln University Sports Scholar), Jane Watson, a star of the Silver Ferns Constellation Cup netball series win over Australia, and Paralympics swimming star Sophie Pascoe (a former Supreme award winner), who broke three more world records in the pool in 2020.
