The TCMHA Warriors

The TCMHA Bantam hockey team played in a tournament in Clearwater on Feb. 4-5 and came in with a respectable third-place finish.

Some of the Clinton novice hockey players will be playing in their first big tournament on Feb. 17-19 in Lillooet, as members of the Ashcroft novice team. They hope to have a game in Clinton in March.

Keep your eyes open for posters, so you can come out and support our local youth in their hockey games.
