This past weekend, we had more than 200 players on two sheets of ice; packed stands with fans cheering on their favorite girls; a new skills challenge that had the girls competing for a delicious bundt cake; and pin trading at the arena and our gambling sites.
We want to thank ... - Our volunteers who made the tournament a success by running the clock, working the penalty box, scoring the game in GameSheet and took on other duties as needed! - The refs who covered all the games, some longer than usual with several going into overtime. - Our sponsors who continue to generously support our association. - The vendors who sold delicious food, cool apparel and more! - The teams (and their coaches, managers, and parents) who made it a fun, competitive weekend of hockey! - Tournament Director, Christine Shidla, and the Tournament Committee for the countless hours behind the seconds to pull off a fun-filled weekend!
Also, congratulations to this year's 3rd, 2nd and 1st place teams-GO HAWKS!:
