Secco with Team Canada at Valencia Hockey World League


Stanford senior Maddie Secco is competing with Team Canada at the Valencia Hockey World League Semi-Finals to pursue a spot in the final competition and a position at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The Canadians have had a rough go and went 0-4 during pool play while getting outscored, 16-2. Team Canada meets Uruguay on Friday in the ninth-place contest.

The top four teams in the 10-team tournament will earn a spot in the Hockey World League Final in Argentina. The top three teams in the tournament will earn a spot at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

Teams competing in the tournament include Spain, Argentina, China, Germany, Great Britain, South Africa, the United States, Canada, Ireland and Uruguay.

Secco enters the tournament with 51 senior caps after making her debut with the national team in 2011.

Secco has been a staple in the midfield on the wing during her time at Stanford racking up 49 points on 15 goals and 19 assists in 58 games.

Secco is coming off a terrific junior campaign and was named to the Longstreth/NFHCA All-Region Second Team, NorPac All-Conference First Team and NorPac All-Tournament Team. She registered a career-best year, setting or matching single-season highs in points (20), goals (6), assists (8) and game-winning goals (2).
