Chilliwack goaltender one step away 2017 National Women’s U-18 Championship

If Kate Stuart shines at a late September B.C. Hockey camp, she’ll be off to Quebec for nationals.

Chilliwack’s Kate Stuart has been short-listed by B.C. Hockey, moving one step closer to playing in the 2017 National Women’s U-18 Championship.

Stuart is one of 26 players invited to a tryout camp running Sept. 28 to Oct. 1 in Vancouver.

The netminder earned her invite with an impressive performance at a selection camp held two weeks ago in Shawnigan Lake and because she’s one of just two goalies invited to the next camp she seems assured of making the final roster.

“This year we saw an incredible group of talented, strong players from around B.C. and the Yukon, making it a tough decision to narrow the field to 26 players,” said B.C. Hockey Female Program of Excellence (POE) Coordinator, Whitney Juszkiewicz. “We congratulate all the players that have moved forward in the Team B.C. selection process and look forward to working with them as we prepare to compete in Quebec City,”

The National Women’s U-18 Championship features regional teams from Ontario (two), B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec, and Atlantic.

The tournament includes the best midget-aged players in the country and claims alumni such as Marie-Philip Poulin, Natalie Spooner, and Meghan Agosta.

Quebec is hosting this year.

Stuart was part of last year’s bronze medal winning squad.
