Potomak back in camp with Team BC

Aldergrove’s Sarah Potomak was among the 80 female hockey players invited to attend the U18 BC Cup.

The players were split among four teams who faced off in Salmon Arm from April 23 to 27. The event was for players born in 1997 and 1998.

Those selected to attend were invited based on evaluations done this past season by BC Hockey’s female high performance evaluators. Players from this camp will advance to the team BC provincial camp May 16 to 19 in Lake Cowichan.

Potomak, who plays for the Kelowna-based Pursuit of Excellence program, represented Canada last month at the U18 world hockey championships in Helsinki. She helped Canada win the gold and had five goals and eight points in five games.

Up next for Potomak is the national women’s team program’s strength and conditioning camp, which takes place May 7 to 11 at Hamilton’s McMaster University.
