BC Hockey announced March 18, 2013 that Breanna Berndsen (Kelowna, BC) has been named the Female Midget AAA player of the month for February. Berndsen scored six (6) goals and had three (3) assists in six (6) games in February. The Thompson-Okanagan finished the FMAAA regular season in second place with a 14-8-6 record.
“Breanna is a positive force with the team and her energy is contagious to her teammates,” said head coach Mark Elder. “This is her first year in the league, and through hard work and dedication, she has made a successful jump into the Female Midget AAA league.”
Outside of hockey, Breanna spends her time volunteering at the Kelowna General Hospital, gaining valuable experience in her hopes of a career in the medical field.
Breanna was chosen from a high calibre list of other nominees, including:
· Emina Ida (Pacific Ravens)
· Erin MacLean (Kootenay Wildcats)
The Female Midget AAA League was initiated in the 2007-2008 season in response to the membership’s desire to provide an opportunity for elite female hockey players to come together on zone teams to challenge other elite Female Midget teams.
