Pair make the cut

A pair of local hockey players have made the final roster and will play at the U18 national women's championships.

Langley's Chelsea Wilson and Aldergrove's Sarah Potomak were on the final roster unveiled by BC Hockey last week (Aug. 9).

The roster was selected following a Team BC summer development camp with the Kazakhstan women's national team.

The Kazakhstan team won two out of the three games they played in Salmon Arm.

Wilson, who turns 16 in September, is a five-foot-five, 120-pound forward and Potomak is a five-foot-five, 135-pound forward. Potomak turns 15 in December and is the youngest player on the 20-person roster.

She played last season with the Pursuit of Excellence program out of Kelowna while Wilson played for the Fraser Valley Phantom of the B.C. Hockey Female Midget AAA League.

Team BC will compete at the U18 national championships in Dawson Creek from Nov. 7 to 12.
