Vikes in Toronto for CIS field hockey nationals

The UVic Vikes women’s field hockey team is in Toronto for the CIS women’s field hockey championship, Nov. 1 to 4.

UVic Vike Carly Krestanovich carries the ball against the UBC Thunderbirds at UVic earlier this season. The Vikes and T-Birds travel to Toronto for the CIS nationals this week.

The UVic Vikes women’s field hockey team is in Toronto for the CIS women’s field hockey championship, Nov. 1 to 4.

A 12th championship banner isn’t out of the question for the Vikes, but with 12  first and second year players on the squad, this year is more about experience and the long term plan.

Last week three Vikes were named Canada West All-Stars, local products Kyla Kirby and Annie Walters-Shumka, and Surrey’s Carly Krestanovich.

The national championship begins with round-robin play from Thursday to Saturday. The top two teams following pool play will advance to gold-medal final on Nov. 4. All 12 matches will be streamed on CIS-SIC.tv.

The Vikes (3-4-1) qualified for nationals by finishing second in the three-team conference ahead of Calgary, and behind UBC (8-0).
