Five valley hockey players excel during U18 national finals
Field hockey players from the valley made their usual valuable contributions to teams during the U18 national championships in Calgary.
Casey Crowley was co-captain of the B.C. Blue team that won the gold medal following a 3-0 victory over Ontario.
Four valley players crossed paths in the bronze medal game, with Chelsey Cleemoff, Stefanie Langkammer and their B.C. Yellow teammates taking a 1-0 decision over a B.C. White team that included Brittany Smith and Sara Lowes.
All five of the players were invited to the U21 national junior team identification camp at UBC after the tournament.
Cowichan’s Sara Goodman, a U15 provincial player, also received an invite to the camp.
