My best ringette memory: I have a had a ton of great memories with ringette, but the ones that stand out would have to be winning the Western Canadian Ringette Championships in 2013/2014 and also winning the University Challenge Cup in the 2014/2015 season.
Why I’m playing for the University Ringette Team: I am playing for the University Ringette team because it is a very unique team that allows me to be competitive in the sport I love but also gives me the time and resources to focus on school. The last two years on the team have given me multiple opportunities to grow as a player and as a student because of the awesome and supportive environment that the coaches and the players create during the season.
