WORA Alumni Earn National Title At University Challenge Cup

Congratulations to WORA Alumni Mahren Young and Ashley Franko, members of the Brock University Badgers Ringette Team who recently won a national title at the University Challenge Cup, which was hosted by Laurier University and Ringette Ontario from December 27-31, 2019.

The Badgers skated undefeated through the three-day tournament to finish with a record of 9-0.

This was the first UCC title for the Brock Badgers, and only the second Ontario university team to win the tournament, in its 22 year history. 

Mahren and Ashley were both long-time WORA players, and last played together for WORA in 2015-2016 at U19A. They currently play on the same offensive line for Brock. Ashley is in her third year of studying Public Health, while Mahren is in her fourth year studying Sport Management and will be graduating in June 2020.

Congrats to Mahren and Ashley, and best of luck from your friends at WORA as you compete for the rest of the season.
