The Okanagan Hockey Academy will be well-represented at the 2015 Canada Winter Games as six Female Prep players have been named to their respective provincial teams.
Goaltender Morgan Skinner, defencemen Micah Hart and Olivia Knowles, along with forwards Alyssa MacMillan and Ali Rempe were all named to the Team BC Under-18 squad, while defencemen Emma Keenan will suit up for the Team Alberta.
"We are very happy and excited for our players that will be representing their provinces at the Canada Winter Games," said OHA Female Prep head coach, Jim Fetter. "These players have trained and worked very hard over the past couple years to make this team. We wish them all the best and hope they all play their best hockey in Prince George."
Team BC will open up the tournament on February 14th as they face Quebec, while Alberta takes on Nova Scotia.
There will be a total of 15 OHA players in Prince George for the event, as nine players will suit up for Team BC Male Under-16 squad.
Choosing Okanagan Hockey Academy was one of the best decisions I have made for my development. The relationships I built with my teammates, coaches, and staff are bonds that will last a lifetime. The structure of the program on and off the ice prepared me to play junior hockey.
