Ozturk twins excel both on the ice and in the classroom

By Chris Bayee W

hen Derin Ozturk was about to make his first trip to nationals, he

knew where to ask for advice - his twin sister, Erin, who was about to make her fourth consecutive trip. Now that Derin has reached the Pa-

cific District Player Development Camp for the first time, Erin can fill him in on what to expect there, too, given that she will attend the USA Hockey National Se- lect Camp for the second year in a row. That’s how the twins roll, helping

each other out as they pursue their goals of playing college hockey. “We get along well,” said Erin, a cen-

ter on the Anaheim Lady Ducks’ 14U AAA team. “We’re in four classes together (at Huntington Beach High), we help each other out a lot with homework. “Derin helps me with my shot and re-

lease and tells me things I wouldn’t real- ize, which I can use in my game.” Derin, a sturdy 6-foot-2, 200-pound defenseman who played for the LA Se- lects’ Bantam AAA team, said the cama- raderie has always existed. “I’ve been here for her, she’s been here

for me,” he said. “It’s not like we fight; we’re really good friends.” How many teenage boys would want their sister practicing with their team? “At first I was scared she wouldn’t be

good enough,” Derin said. “I knew she was good as a girls player, but she’s big (5- foot-8, 140 pounds), fast and strong. She showed she could compete with my team.” Derin’s teammates had no problem

with the practice guest, coach Rick Kelly noted.

“The guys liked hav-

ing her there, and she held her own against AAA boys,” he said. Erin said the practices sparked her game.

“I’m so grateful Rick

let me skate with Derin’s team and take lessons with them,” she said. “That was one thing that made me better over this past year; practicing


that high speed and with that level of talent made me have to push myself. It showed in my game later in the season.” That Lady Ducks sea- son ended with a bronze medal at their USA Hock- ey National Tournament and a captain’s “C” on Er- in’s sweater.

Not bad consider-

ing neither she nor Derin started playing ice hockey until they were 10 after a few years of recreational roller hockey.

“One of the reasons I

gave her the role of cap- tain was to challenge her and develop her commu- nication

skills because

College hopefuls Erin and Derin Ozturk are two of more than 100 Californians who will compete at the upcoming Pacific District Player Development Camps in Washington and Western Regional Multi-District High Performance Camp in Colorado.

she’s very bright and athletic,” her coach, Kathy McGarrigle, said. “She’s come a long way, and it’s good to see her lead the team and make the strides she has the past couple years.”

Training has been a big part of the twins’ improvement. “We’re on the ice or in the gym at least two hours a day,” Erin said. “We work on things every day to make sure we’re im- proving. (Strength training) has given me an advantage; it helps me win faceoffs and helps me keep going when I have to be out on the ice for power plays and penalty kills.”

As a result, Erin has what her brother calls “the hardest slap shot I’ve ever seen for a girl” - one McGarrigle estimates travels at least 70 miles an hour. The twins bring just as much dedica- tion to their studies.

“Both are really smart,” Kelly said.

“We had 2-3-hour study periods at nation- als, and Ozzy was the tutor for the rest of the team. He’s brilliant. Their family is all about education.” Derin would like to follow in the foot-

steps of his father, Deniz, who is a petro- leum engineer. “Math is pretty much my expertise,”

Derin said. Erin, meanwhile, sees herself combin- ing her passion for sports with her inter- est in science. “I’m leaning towards medicine,” she said. “My mom (Jan) is a doctor, and many of my relatives are as well. Ideally, I’d like to do something with sports medi- cine.”
