Brandonites Jaedon Cooke, Jalyn Elmes and Kristen Campbell have made it to the top-40 camp for Manitoba’s under-18 girls’ hockey team. Cooke is a forward, while Elmes plays defence and Campbell is a goaltender.
Joining them at the camp will be forwards Ashton Bell of Deloraine, Chelsea Dearsley of Baldur, Hannah Fouillard of St. Lazare, Samantha Geekie of Strathclair, Jaycee Magwood of Killarney, Sheridan Oswald of MacGregor and Kjierstan Wallace of Oak Lake. Also representing Westman on defence will be Jenai Buchanan of Crystal City, Melissa Hunt of Hartney and Tamara McVannel of MacGregor.
The camp will take place from May 8-11 in Portage la Prairie, with the top 27 players earning spots in a skills and conditioning camp in July. The camps are part of the process for picking Manitoba’s team for the 2015 Canada Games in Prince George, B.C.
Campbell, Hunt and Oswald all played for the provincial team last season, helping Manitoba finish fifth at the national U-18 championship.
