DiBella Cracks U18 Sqauad

Nelson’s Aimee DiBella has been named to the female U18 Team BC roster for the upcoming hockey season.

Aimee DiBella will be suiting up for Team BC at the national championships in November.

Nelson’s Aimee DiBella has been named to the female U18 Team BC roster for the upcoming hockey season.

The 16-year-old Nelson Minor Hockey raised defenceman came together in mid-May with the best young female hockey players in the province in Salmon Arm for an intense selection camp. Earlier this month BC Hockey announced the 20-player roster that included DiBella who played for the Kootenay Wildcats in the Female Midget AAA league last season.

DiBella’s Wildcats teammate Daley Oddy, who is from Cranbrook, also made the cut.

The B.C. team will gather in July for a summer training camp in preparation for the national championships which will take place in Quebec in November. Both DiBella and Oddy will likely return to the Wildcats for the 2011-12 season.

DiBella’s older brother Adam had some good news of his own earlier this spring when the 18-year-old blueliner was signed by the Salmon Arm Silverbacks of the BCHL.
