On Sunday, November 18th, Hannah Daigneault, Sophia Sullivan, Kate Nichols, and Catherine Lajoie from the SAM Red Peewee team had the opportunity to represent both SAM and Maine in the Girls U12 Division of the TD Bank Mini 1-on-1 Competition at the TD Garden in Boston. The girls competed in the 3 v 3 cross-ice competition against a field of 13 other teams from New England. Although the girls were knocked out in the first round (by a Rhode Island team that eventually made it to the championship game), they played hard and enjoyed the experience of skating on the Bruins ice and representing their home state.
