Invermere native Holly Nikirk — who billets in Nelson — is one of the Wildcats who will suit up in the upcoming all-star game.

Eight Wildcats named all stars

The Kootenay Wildcats have struggled to start the 2011-12 Female Midget AAA League season

The Kootenay Wildcats have struggled to start the 2011-12 Female Midget AAA League season, but that didn’t stop eight players from being named to the all star team.

The list is the most ever for the Nelson-based squad. The showcase of the province’s top female hockey players is scheduled for Burnaby on December 18.

Making the trip to the Lower Mainland will be Christina Bonacci (Trail), Erin McLean (Trail), Katie Yuris (Trail), Denomie Vockeroth-Fisher (Rossland), Morgan Flynn (Castlegar), Kathryn Haegedorn (Kaslo), Shea Weighill (Nakusp) and Holly Nikirk (Invermere). Wildcats manager Mike Bonacci has also been selected as the team’s manager.

In regular season play the Wildcats — who practice and play home games in Nelson — have only managed to muster a 2-10-0-0 record. Last season the team fell one game short of capturing the league championship in the playoffs.
