Field Hockey Canada would like to congratulate Canadian umpire Wendy Stewart for receiving the “golden whistle” for officiating her 100th international match on Thursday at the Commonwealth Games.
Wendy is originally from Scotland and emigrated to Canada in 2000, and today had the pleasure of officiating her 100th match in her native Scotland.
She got involved umpringin in Calgary as a way to give back to local associations and takes great pride in being involved in field hockey from a grassroots level to the international stage.
“It’s an amazing sport that has provided many priceless opportunities.”
Congrats to Wedny and here’s to many more!
