Shelley Andrews

Shelley Andrews came out of Oak Bay High School to become one of the greatest Canadian women's field hockey players of all-time. She was a tower of power on the back line and controlled the game defensively during her years of playing internationally for Canada's national team. With Shelley playing over 100 times and anchoring the defense, Canada turned into a field hockey world power in the 1980s. Shelley was selected female athlete of the year for Oak Bay High in 1971, UBC female athlete of the year for 1975 and Greater Victoria Female athlete of the Year in 1987. But it was on the field hockey pitch that the native Victorian truly shone as she rose to become an Olympian, World Cup medallist and one of the top players on the planet. Shelley co-captained Canada to the silver medal at the 1983 World Cup, to the bronze medal at the 1986 World Cup and to fifth place at the 1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympics.
