Women's hockey keeps growing in NB

Everywhere you look these days the opportunity for women to play the best sport in the world continues to grow. From Timbits in minor hockey right up to the University level, females playing hockey isn't the "surprise" it once was.

For example the annual World Pond Hockey tournament held in Plaster Rock, NB has added a women's division for the first time. A team comprised of former Tommies currently hold top spot at the tournament. We have our fingers crossed that Catherine Boudreau, Amy Nelson, Rebecca Connors and Sarah Braamm can bring home the championship and have "Has-Been-Tommies" (all former St. Thomas players) added as the inaugural winners of this tournament.

Daily Gleaner: Has-Been-Tommies are exact opposite on Pond
