Okanagan Hockey Academy student athlete Miranda Gaudet will attend and play NCAA hockey for Clarkson University beginning next season.
Gaudet, 17, currently sits at eight points (1-7-8) in nine games with the Okanagan Hockey Academy Female Prep team this season. During the 2016-17 season, the West Kelowna, B.C. product notched 11 points (5-6-11) in 15 games.
Clarkson University is located in Potsdam, N.Y. Their women’s ice hockey team competes in the NCAA Division I ECAC Conference. They have won two NCAA Championships (2014, 2017) and have competed in six NCAA Tournaments (2010, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017).
At the end of grade nine, my parents and I decided it would be beneficial for both my hockey and scholastic development to attend OHA the next year. We toured other hockey academies, but ultimately felt OHA was the best fit for me. The coach’s and trainer’s expertise allowed me to learn more about the game, further develop my skills, strength and stamina and readied me to enter the WHL as a competent and confident 16 year old. With the support of great teachers and tutors my grades improved and I made friends that will last a lifetime. I highly recommend OHA for the player who is looking to take their game, grades and life skills to the next level."
