Local hockey player finishes ‘Dream’ season
It was a Dream season for the Bantam A Rapides de Sherbrooke girls hockey team and local girl Hannah Veilleux was a part of that team. Coached by Dominic Ouellette, the Rapides won 21 games, lost 2 and tied 1 of their 24 regular season games. They participated in three tournaments that were held in Drummondville, Laval and Sherbrooke, coming home with Champion banners in all three occasions. This being an inter-regional league, the playoffs were held in Lachine where the team was defeated in the semifinals. But to be able to go to the Provincial Dodge Cup,
they had to win the regionals which was achieved in Sherbrooke. The provincials were held in Rimouski from April 9th to the 12th and the girls were guaranteed three games. They lost one and won two and were able to push on to the semifinals which they won 4-0. In the finals they faced Three Rivers and, in a nail-biting game, they conquered with a score of 2-0. It was truly a dream season for these girls. The first seven years of Hannah’s hockey was played through the Border Minor Hockey program. This is also her second time playing at the Dodge Cup. Last year she played for the Peewee AA Harfangs
de Sherbrooke who also brought home the champion banner. Congratulations to Hannah and all the girls on the Bantam A team!!!
