To The Editor:
The St. Lawrence Thunder Girls 14U Hockey team would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generous support of our trip to San Jose, California for the Girls 14U Tier II National Championships.
At nationals, we exited the preliminary rounds as the number 2 seed in our division and faced the Massachusetts state champions, the Cape Cod Storm, in the quarter finals. An epic battle ensued and in the sixth overtime we prevailed 3-2.
Next we faced the Alaska All Stars in the semi-finals, and unfortunately came up short with a 2-1 loss to the eventual national champs. Although we did not achieve our ultimate goal of bringing home a national championship, we came away from the tournament with our heads held high maintaining our overall ranking as the number 1 Tier II team in the nation for the 2012-2013 season with a record of 41-15-4.
Again, we are sincerely grateful for this opportunity and it would not have been possible without your sponsorship. We will treasure this experience for a lifetime.
