SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. — Dawson Creek’s Hailey Armstrong earned a gold medal with Team BC on Sunday at the 2023 Canada Winter Games.
BC beat Nova Scotia 3-0, gaining the province’s second winter games medal since earning silver in 1991.
“This has been a long time coming,” said British Columbia head coach Kris Hogg in a release.
“It is hard to put this feeling into words. A lot of these girls have been in our program for a long time and have battled hard from day one to put B.C. on the map. What a great job by this group. I’m very proud of them all.”
Mikayla Blomquist (Lake Country), Maddie Leaney (Maple Ridge), and Danica Maynard (Osoyoos) each put up a goal in the gold medal game.
Armstrong had five points, with four goals and an assist, for Team BC through six games at the event.
Team BC finished this year’s Canada Winter Games, hosted across Prince Edward Island, with a perfect record.
