Who was Kirsty Gibbs?
Kirsty Gibbs was a member of Macquarie University Women's Hockey Club who passed away at a young age in 1998. She was a Magette through and through - tough on the field, and cheerful and smiley off the field.
She put a huge amount of her time and energy into the club, was President of the Mac Uni Women's Hockey club (in those days Mens and Women's Clubs were separate), and played a key role in initiating and developing the club into the fantastic family we all enjoy being part of today.
Why is there an award named after her?
Since she passed away, the Kirsty Gibbs Award has been presented annually to someone who reflects Kirsty's attitude, efforts and achievements in relation to Macquarie University Hockey Club - on and/or off the field. In short, the Kirsty Gibbs Award is the 'Club Person of the Year'. Every club member for 2017 can vote - so please do!!
