Fairfield’s Hart wins championship with Shoreline Sharks
The U-14 Black (AA) Shoreline Sharks girl’s hockey team - with Fairfield’s Abby Hart on the roster -- recently won the USA Hockey’s 2017 Tier II National Championship. Undefeated in state and regional before going national, the Sharks earned the title with a 2-0 win over the Wisconsin Black Cats at the Troy (Mich.) Sports Center.
“It was a phenomenal tournament run, I am proud of what the girls accomplished,” coach Ed Rodham said. “We played and beat teams from Alaska, Michigan, Colorado, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Wisconsin to win the title. The dedication of our players and their countless hours of practice paid off. We headed into the tournament undefeated in our last 20 games of the season, giving us the powerful momentum needed to win the USA Hockey National Championship.”
The Sharks (43-11-10) became the 16th team from Connecticut to win a National girls title since the championship tournament started in 1978.
