Although score wise, it was a fairly difficult season, the Bobcats had a fun year of hockey both and off the ice. We all improved as hockey players and became a close, bonded team. We will miss our seven graduating seniors - Ali Desjardin, Kat Dorian, Becca Otley, Melanie Sklar, Jennalee Kulig, Ali Millard, and Sarah Logan. Last Sunday, we celebrated the end of the season at DaVinci's and said farewell to our seniors. We are looking forward to next season, hoping to get a good deal of first-year talent to contribute to a successful future season!
