8U Selects Show Heart on and off of the Ice

By Jocelyn Sams 12/30/2019, 4:45pm EST

The 8u Selects Team, coached by Heather Auch and Chris Bucciarelli, have had some big successes early on in the season.  The team, consisting of 2011-2014 8u players, went 3-1 at the OneHockey Tournament in Raleigh over Thanksgiving weekend and brought home the Championship Banner and gold medals for the team.  The team also went 8-0 and won the 2019 8u Reindeer Games tournament in Greenville, SC in mid-December.  The team has many exciting jamborees and two tournaments left to finish out the season.

Teamwork and skills development are the cornerstones of this team, according to Coach Auch and will continue to be the focus as the team moves through the remainder of the season.
