The 2018-2019 North Bantam B2 has been challenged early in the season with some tough competition that has quickly prepared them for what they need to do to be competitive at the B2 level for the remainder of the season.
The team had their first tournament at the beginning of December in Brainerd, which gave the players a great opportunity to get to know each other better and develop some team chemistry. After a lot of hard work in practices, they entered into District 8 play last week and have started with a 1-1-1 record, with an exciting 5-4 win against Cottage Grove in the last minute of play!
This season the team will be participating in the Elk River tournament (January 25th – 27th) and our very own Lakeville tournament (February 8th – 10th).
The team is led by captains Cole Dougall (50), Brady Lynn (34) and Gabe MacFarland (42). Between the pipes this year will first year bantams Gavin Evans and Zander Gray.
The coaching staff is comprised of head coach Justin Anderson along with assistants Jeff Atkins, Kirk Dougall and Andrew Evans. Manager duties will be handled by Andrew Hansen.
