Chilliwack hockey stars shine at Shawnigan Lake camp

Tamina Kehler and Kate Stuart hope to represent B.C. at Canadian U-18 nationals this November.

Chilliwack’s Tamina Kehler and Kate Stuart hit the ice in Shawnigan Lake last weekend for Hockey B.C.’s U-18 Selection Camp.

The pool of players was split into two teams (White and Navy) and played three games.

Kehler, a forward for Team White, recorded one assist.

Stuart, a goaltender, split Team White goaltending duties with Ladysmith native Hailey Martens.

After a rough go in the first game, a 5-1 loss, the netminders settled down to post 3-1 and 5-0 wins.

Players were invited to this camp based on their performances at a U-18 Invitational Selection Camp held in May in Lake Cowichan.

Stuart and Kehler hope to attend a U-18 Prep Camp in Vancouver this September and from there secure a spot on the team that will represent B.C. at the National Women’s U-18 Championship in Quebec City, QC Nov. 1-5.
