Young Indigenous athletes from across the country will be heading to Membertou, Nova Scotia next month to participate in the National Aboriginal Hockey Championships (NAHC) including a few from the Meadow Lake area.

Martina Desjarlais, Destiny Fiddler, and Kylie Lariviere will be on the female team. Roddy Ross will be the goalie for the male squad. All have gone through the Meadow Lake Minor Hockey program throughout the years.
