Okanagan Hockey Academy student athlete Sophie Lalor will attend and play U Sports hockey at the University of Saskatchewan beginning next season.
Lalor, 17, has accumulated 10 points (3-7-10) in nine games with the Okanagan Hockey Academy Female Prep team this season. The Penticton, B.C. product netted 17 points (7-10-17) in 20 games during the 2016-17 campaign.
Lalor recently won a bronze medal with Team BC at the 2017 National Women’s Under-18 Championship.
The University of Saskatchewan is located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Their women’s ice hockey team competes in the U Sports Canada West Conference.
My dream is to play hockey at the highest level. My three years at OHA were instrumental in helping me move forward on that path, teaching me what it takes to be a pro both on and off the ice."
