The Hamburg Monarchs 12-and-under girls team enjoyed a very successful James Yoviene Memorial Tournament, going 3-1 without allowing a single regulation goal in four games against tough competition from the Buffalo and Rochester region. Unfazed by the challenges they faced, including the cold, the Monarchs scored 13 times, before falling in a close shootout n the championship game. Strides were made by the team and the experience will serve as a building block for the season. The team includes, from left, first row: Julia Downey, Jenna Dickson, Abby Hillery, Clarice Byrne, Anjali Silverheels, Isabella Simoncelli and Gillian Groth. Second ow: Coach Maxson, Alyssa Lorka, Cailey Beaudoin, Megan Mascio, Hannah Gorski, Emily Applegate, Julia Baldonado, Sophie Landers and Coach Groth. Missing from photo: Kate Kelley.
