Delta Ringette players shine on sport's biggest stages

Nerissa Beeby named to First All-Star Line at U16 Canadian Ringette Championships in Regina

A group of talented players, that came together through Delta Ringette, are now making an impact with regional and provincial teams.

Nerissa Beeby, Eva Ekholm, Haeley Keen and Rachael Pugsley wrapped up their seasons at the recent Canadian Ringette Championships in Regina as members of the U16 B.C. team.

Although B.C. didn’t reach the podium with a 2-3 record, Beeby was recognized for her outstanding play by being named to the tournament’s First All-Star Line on defense.

This is a significant accomplishment in a sport where B.C. teams are typically in tough against the traditional powerhouse provinces, making individual recognition difficult to achieve. The Seaquam Secondary student was honoured at the nationals' awards banquet where she was presented with her all-star jersey.

The championship season started with the four girls helping Zone 2 (Delta, Richmond, Vancouver) capture the U16 title at the Ringette B.C. Provincials.

Beeby and Pugsley then joined three other Delta players – Amorey Cronmiller, Farryn Leigh and Gabriella Bender – as members of the Vancouver Coastal team that won gold at last month’s B.C. Winter Games in Greater Vernon, thanks to an unbeaten record.
