Shooting For Success
The Kingswood girls hockey team has begun their second season wearing the green and white.
The team is fairly new, only forming last year after a 50-year history of Kingswood sports. To make it happen, last season’s captains, senior Shannon Riley and 2015 graduat
e Maria Hendrickson, badgered local hockey coach Tom Cayon to host the team at Kingswood.
Sophomores Claire Richard and Nikki Cayon, a goalie, asked as well. With a goalie and three solid players, they assured him they could found a team. Other girls who joined the team last year included sophomores Alissa Baldwin, Shawna Knowles, Sofie Marshall and Breanne LeBlanc.
This year, Coach Cayon says they are expecting about 15 girls, a larger turnout than last year. The team won two games in Division II last year, and expects to do even better this year.
“It took 50 years for a team this cool,” Cayon said.
