Wildcats win tourney title

West Kootenay squad won the Tier 1 Division in the Haley Wickenheiser World Hockey Festival in Calgary.

The West Kootenay Bantam Wildcats won the Tier 1 Division in the Haley Wickenheiser World Hockey Festival held in Calgary from November 28 to 30.

The team played four round robin games against Prince George, Edmonton and Sherwood Park. The girls rolled through the round robin with two wins, one loss and a forfeit tie due to Prince George being stranded in Edmonton by weather.

That set up the final against Sherwood Park, the team that beat them in the round robin.

The Wildcats battled hard and came up with a 2-0 win to take the title.

The weekend featured a meet and greet and pictures with Haley Wickenheiser.

The team is made up of girls from Trail (Tessy Brandt, Elle Mayer, Jessica Stadjuhar, Emma Caron), Rossland (Eva D’Odorico), Fruitvale (Camryn Haines, Cali Piche), Castlegar (Kelsey Paterson, Faithe Harris), Grand Forks (Brittney Konkin), Edgewood (Raven Atherton), Kaslo (Emily Early), and Nelson (Reece Hunt, Haley Elias, Shayla Elias, Taylor Harrison).

The coaches include D’Arcy Caron, Jeff Hunt and Jennie Gallo.
