Cowichan Valley field hockey players get on national radar

Five Cowichan Valley field hockey players parlayed their success at the Field Hockey Canada U18 National Championships earlier this month into spots at the U21 Canadian National Team identification camp.

Casey Crowley, Chelsey Cleemoff, Stefanie Langkammer, Sara Lowes and Brittany Smith played for the three B.C. teams that all finished among the top four at the national championships in Calgary on Aug. 7-10. Along with fellow local product and provincial U16 player Sara Goodman, they were all invited to the national junior team camp at the University of British Columbia on Aug. 12-17.

Crowley was a co-captain of the B.C. Blue team that won gold at the U18 tournament in Calgary, while Cleemoff was captain of the B.C. Yellow squad, also including Langkammer, that took the bronze medal. Lowes and Smith were teammates on the fourthplace B.C. White team, with Lowes serving as co-captain.

Goodman suited up for the B.C. Blue contingent at the U16 National Championships in West Vancouver in July, where they finished second behind Ontario, with other B.C. teams also in the third and fourth positions.
