Pursue the Pursuit of Excellence.

That's what the other teams at the 2013 Female World Sport School Challenge hockey tournament are doing after the first day of the eight-team tournament on Thursday at the MTS Iceplex.

The Kelowna, B.C.-based Pursuit of Excellence team has outscored its opponents 15-2 and outshot its opposition 99-17 after two games at the Hockey Canada-sanctioned event.

The tournament is the inaugural championship of female hockey sport schools featuring high-school-aged players from across Canada.

The Pursuit of Excellence team beat New Brunswick's Rothesay Netherwood team 6-0 and the Banff Hockey Academy 9-2.

Okanagan Hockey Academy, from Penticton, B.C., also had two wins after the first day with wins of 4-3 (shootout) over Calgary's Edge School and 2-0 over the host St. Mary's Academy Flames of Winnipeg. St. Mary's has a 1-1 record as it shut out Fort Frances 5-0 in its other game Thursday.

The preliminary round will continue Friday with St. Mary's having just one game, against Edge at 9:30 a.m.

Shaftesbury, the other Winnipeg school in the tournament, played one game Thursday and posted a 6-2 victory over Banff. Shaftesbury will play two games on Friday, a 9:45 a.m. meeting with the Pursuit of Excellence and a 3:30 p.m. game against Rothesay Netherwood.

The preliminary round will be complete at the end of the day Friday. Saturday's action will include semifinal games at 1:45 p.m. and 2 p.m.

On Sunday, the bronze-medal game will be played at 10:15 a.m. followed by the gold-medal game at 1:30 p.m.
