Holt makes Team Alberta short list


BASHAW — Jessyka Holt has moved one step closer to a berth on Alberta’s under-18 women’s hockey team.

The Bashaw forward is among 27 players shortlisted for the fi nal stage of tryouts for the team that will represent the province in the Canadian under-18 championship Nov. 2-6 in Saguenay, Que.

“She’s a very responsible player,” Alberta head coach Stuart Pietersma said of Holt, one of 15 players still in contention for 12 forward spots. “As the weeklong camp went on, she showed that she can adjust her style of play to what the coaching staff is asking of her, which is a very valuable trait. To be able to perform on demand is very valuable for a short-term competition.”

Holt, who is going into Grade 11 at Warner Hockey School in September, showed her stuff during Hockey Alberta’s top-47 provincial camp in July.
