As the current hockey season starts to wind down, the Île-des-Chênes Elks have rostered a girls team to compete in the Rural Pee Wee B Provincials, to be played in Neepawa from March 16–18.

The team, made up of players from nine different squads throughout southeastern Manitoba, including Île-des-Chênes, St. Adolphe, and Ste. Anne, as well as players from the Southern Steelers Minor Hockey Association and Rat River Minor Hockey Association, has come together to play as one roster. The players range from Atom A, Pee Wee C, and Pee Wee A.

“We played in the Springfield tournament on Louis Riel Day for the first time as a team,” says Robyn Waddell, team manager. “And we have an exhibition game versus the Lorette Comets on February 25.”

The team has been practicing mostly out of Île-des-Chênes, with coaches hailing from Île-des-Chênes, St. Adolphe, and Ste. Anne.

“We wish them luck in their provincial weekend,” says Waddell. “Go, Elks, Go!”
