Lady Avs win Calif. tourney

Ben Husband

The Aspen Junior girls’ Tier I hockey team traveled to another regional tournament last weekend and brought home another trophy.

The defending Rocky Mountain Division and Western Regional champion Lady Avs traveled to Huntington Beach, Calif., last weekend for the Presidents Day Weekend Tournament.

Competing against five other regional teams – Colorado Springs, California, Dallas, New Mexico and Utah – Aspen not only came home with the tournament cup, but they came home with six shutouts.

The Lady Avs defeated Colorado Springs 6-0; Huntington Beach 5-0; Dallas 6-0; New Mexico 9-0 and continued the streak in the championship game Monday with a 7-0 win over Utah.

Aspen goalkeepers Kim Raymond, a Canadian all-star, and Molly Tomkins combined to record the six shutouts.

“The entire team played great,” Aspen assistant coach Pete Whitmore said.

Jenny Rice led Aspen’s scoring barrage with five goals in the tournament while Ali Crum added four.

Bridget Davenport, Kristin Harn, Julianne Vasichek, Mikki Tofte all scored three, while Sascha Anastas and Courtney Brinkerhoff each added two. Sara Finesilver also scored for the Lady Avs.
