Hard work from AMHA earned Midwest Select placement

8 AMHA female players made the Midwest Select teams this summer!
The Midwest league had an all girls jamboree in April followed by two session evaluation to create summer tournament teams for u10,  U12 and U14 teams.   The athletes were from Iowa, Nebraska and Missouri.  Our AMHA association had representation at all three levels this summer.   The teams play in the Minnesota Summer Showcase against teams from MN, Wisconsin, North Dakota and Canada.   It was a great experience for the girls to meet other players from the affiliate and compete at a high level of girls hockey.    
I’d like to recognize the following players selected to play for the Midwest Selects.  
U10:   Callie Lilliwitz,  Cameron Callan, Brooklyn Paulsen.
U12:  Grace Larsen,  Kaitlynn Wright,  Lucie Van Bergen
U14:   Reagan Murphy,  Megan McCloud
U12 had some great success in the Summer Finale placing third in a 12 team division of Minnesota and North Dakota teams.  Midwest girls hockey is growing and AMHA is playing an important role!
Congratulations, Ladies! Keep up the hard work!
