Watch city’s two reps play for Team BC

Two Salmon Arm hockey players will finally reach their goal to represent B.C. at the Women’s Nationals U18 Tournament in Saguenay, Quebec

After a challenging and lengthy tryout process, two Salmon Arm hockey players will finally reach their goal, to represent B.C. at the Women’s Nationals U18 Tournament in Saguenay, Quebec from Nov. 1-6. Those athletes are Maggie Shykula-Ross and Alexa Ranahan.

Both teens’ names can be viewed on Team BC’s final roster, but such a feat didn’t come without hard work and dedication. A seven-stage process, Ranahan and Shykula-Ross have had to avoid several elimination rounds to make the team.

Now, after much preparation, these local athletes, along with the rest of their Team BC teammates, are ready to face their competition: teams Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario Red, Ontario Blue, Atlantic, Saskatchewan and Quebec, in the quest for gold.

Starting at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2, Team BC goes up against Alberta in its first game of the preliminary round. All the games of the Women’s Nationals U18 Tournament will be broadcast live on the Internet and the finals will be shown on TSN. Visit for more ways to watch the action unfold.
