 Tier 1 Girls Thrive at Can/Am Tournament

The U14 and U16 Tier 1 DSE Girls posted a strong showing at the Can/Am Sixth Annual Madison Challenge Cup, placing 3rd and 2nd place respectively in a nine team division. The U14s posted a 2-0-3 overall tournament record, with wins over the Madison Capitols and San Jose Jr. Sharks, and tying the Milwaukee Jr. Admirals, Chicago Mission and St. Louis Lady Blues. The U16s posted a 3-1-1 overall record, winning games vs Team Illinois, Thunder Bay Queens and Palmer Pioneers, while tying the Lady Rough Riders and losing only in the championship to the Madison Capitols 2-1.

The DSE Girls program continues to show a rapid trajectory towards a premier Girls Hockey Development Program in the country. Coach Salekin commented on the tournament… “It is nice to see the players' hard work and development get noticed on the national level. We have proved this season that our Tier1 U16 and U14 teams match up against the strongest girls' teams across North America. It is exciting that our success is also being noticed by NCAA programs around the country. We have had a player recently commit to Yale University and I expect more to follow with NCAA commitments in the coming months. We have come a long way as a girls' hockey program in the recent years. It is exciting to see the DSE Girls organization providing Texas female hockey players with a strong development path to college hockey."
