Ladner forward named to U18 Team BC

Big month for Ashley Morrow includes earning tournament MVP honours in Ontario
After earning tournament MVP honours earlier this month in Ontario as member of the Greater Vancouver Comets, Ladner's Ashley Morrow has been named to the U18 provincial team that is headed to nationals in Manitoba.

Ashley Morrow will be in Team B.C. colours at the 2019 National Women’s U18 Hockey Championships in Manitoba.

The Ladner forward was among 20 players named to the final roster following an extensive tryout process that concluded with a recent four-day camp at UBC.

Morrow, 17, is a key returning third-year member of the B.C. Female Midget AAA provincial champion Greater Vancouver Comets. 

She was named MVP at a tournament earlier this month in Stoney Creek, Ont as the Comets rolled to an unbeaten record. Last season, she posted 46 points in 31 regular season games, including six goals.

Morrow came through the South Delta Stars girls program before joining the Richmond Ravens to play rep hockey, setting the stage for her transition to the B.C. Female Midget AAA League. 

The Team B.C. tryout process included a week long provincial camp in July at Shawnigan Lake.

“We look forward to continuing the recent success of Team BC with this group of talented players,” commented BC Hockey Chief Executive Officer, Barry Petrachenko. “The preparations by this group of athletes, coaches and team staff have been outstanding and we are excited to have them represent BC at the National Women's U18 Hockey Championship.”

The tournament runs from Nov. 3-9 in Morden and Winkler, MB.
