The U11 Wheatland Wranglers are the league champions after a 5-2 win at the Strathmore Family Centre Arena last night (March 10). 

There was electric energy in the arena when the Wranglers won their inaugural season against Camrose White. 

“It was a pretty exciting night; the girls worked so hard and deserved every bit of it,” said coach Adele O'Malley. 

This is the first season the Wranglers have played together. It was announced last year that Strathmore and Wheatland County will have an all-female hockey league and will play their first season in 2023-2024. 

"This is our first year running the Wheatland Wranglers. And it just couldn't have gone any better. It was the best group of girls, parents, and coaches that I was lucky enough to coach with. It was a great season."

There was a lot of leadership in the game and the team rallied together to secure the big win. 

“The girls came out strong in both of their final games and even the semifinals last weekend leading up to this. It was amazing at the U11 age level to see the girls show up and step up their game.” 

When the team was presented with the banner, they proudly skated around the arena showing off and celebrating their big win.  

According to O'Malley, the next step for the team is to prepare for next year's hockey season.
