Reece Hunt to play Team BC

Hunt will represent the province at next month's national women's under-18 championship.

Nelson's Reece Hunt has been chosen to play for Team BC at November's national under-18 championship.

Yet another Hunt is rising through the hockey ranks

Reece Hunt has been selected to play for British Columbia at the women’s national under-18 championship, which runs Nov. 9 to 13 in Regina.

Hunt is a 15-year-old forward and the younger sister of Florida Panthers prospect Dryden Hunt and Nelson Leafs captain Sawyer Hunt.

She competed in tryouts for four months to make the 20-player roster.

Team BC coach Christina Sharun said in a statement the roster is the best of the province’s players at this age group.

“We are confident that this group will be great representatives, not only for our province, but for all those who have worn the BC jersey before them, and for those who were unsuccessful in making the final roster, but who brought energy and intensity to each camp along the selection process,” said Sharun.
