Congratulations to our PGHA Scholarship winner for the 2020-2021 season Lauren Bell. 



Lauren has been an Ice Kat for the duration of her hockey career. 

Lauren says this of the PGHA: "Over the course of my hockey career, the Ice Kats organization has played an immense role in making me the player I am today. I began playing for the Ice Kats when I was 7 years old. I played my entire minor hockey career as an Ice Kat up until second year midget."

Lauren went on to play a year of Junior Hockey in Aurora and hopes that one day the PGHA might have a Junior team for future players to represent their home town with pride. She is now playing hockey for the University of Waterloo as she pursues her academic studies as well. 

Lauren is a role model for our younger players and said this about the game she is so passionate about:

"Personally, hockey is much more than a game to me. It has taught me so many lifelong skills that I use everyday. For example, hockey has taught me how to work as a team, how to be a good sport, to never give up, how to be a leader, time management, motivation, having a positive attitude and the ability to think quick and focus. Hockey has provided me so many opportunities in life that I am forever thankful for. It has also provided me with some of my best friends. When times are tough, whether that be with school or something personal, hockey has always been an outlet where I can just let go and focus on the game. Without hockey, I would not be the person I am today as it plays such a tremendous role in my life. I am fortunate enough that I get to further my career playing in university in hopes that one day I can play in the PWHPA."

Congratulations on all of your accomplishments thus far Lauren, the PGHA wish you all the best in your future endeavours.
