Hannah was introduced to the sport of rugby at the age of 14 by neighbours and family friends. She excelled rather quickly, going from the club level, to provincial to national in three years. Now 19, she has the potential to wear the red and white for the next decade. Hannah received her first cap with Canada’s Women’s Sevens Team at the 2014 Hong Kong Invitational Sevens. She made her Women’s Sevens World Series debut the following week at the Guangzhou Sevens. Her international experience at such a young age was a big reason she was named captain of Canada’s Youth Olympic Games team that finished second at the 2014 YOG in Nanjing, China.
