Kate Klassen’s Team B.C. finishes fifth at U-18 nationals

Klassen led her team into battle in a hugely competitive tournament that was held in Manitoba.

Kate Klassen and Team B.C. earned a fifth place finish at the 2019 National Women’s Under-18 Championship, which was held last week in the Manitoba towns of Morden and Winkler.

Klassen’s crew went 1-2 in the preliminary round with a 5-1 win over Manitoba offset by losses to Quebec (7-1) and Ontario (5-2). Klassen picked up one goal and one assist in the win.

Missing out on the semi-final round, Team B.C. faced Alberta in the fifth-place game and won 4-1.

The result wasn’t what Klassen hoped for coming in to the eight-team tournament, but she said the experience was a memorable one.

“We had high expectations heading into the tournament but the bounces just didn’t go our way,” Klassen said. “It was nice to beat the Canada Winter Games gold medal winners from Alberta in our last game.”

“It has been a pleasure representing Team B.C. over the last two years. I’ve made a lifetime of memories and friendships playing the game I love.”
