The 2021 Junior Pan American Championships came to an end last weekend and marked a very important chapter in Canada’s and British Columbia’s proud field hockey history. The Junior Women’s National team brought home the gold medal; the first ever Canadian women’s Pan American gold registered at any level.

Their campaign at the tournament was spotless, without a single defeat or goal conceded. The three goals scored by Canada in the competition came from BC players: Sara Goodman against Argentina in the Pool stage; Thora Rae against Chile in the semifinal; and Anna Mollenhauer in the final against Uruguay.

The Junior Men’s National team also proudly represented our country and province, finishing in 4th place. BC athletes Sean Davis, Johnny Jacoby and Aaron Fong scored in the competition.

Canada was also represented in the competition by umpires Tyler Klenk, a BC umpire for over 10 years now, and Joanne Wudrich from Ontario.
