Youth hockey team headed to national tournament

After winning the Vermont State AA hockey title on March 5, the Chittenden South Burlington Bantam AA (U14) hockey team is headed south.

The team will represent Vermont in the USA Hockey National Tournament in Charlotte, N.C. March 31-April 4.

“They’re really excited,” said Coach Jed Dousevicz said the Vermonters will be playing the top 45 teams in the country. “It’s a really good team, a good group of kids. It’s a really neat experience to go to a national tournament. It will be fun for everyone.”

The team includes Williston player Seth Fisher-Olvera.
