Brother and sister both are hockey all-stars

  • Print
FOR sister-and-brother hockey blue-liners Raegan Trapmore and Kevin Trapmore, Sunday's high school hockey all-star day at the MTS Centre will also be a family day.

Raegan, a Grade 9 player with the Dakota Lancers girls' team, has been selected to play in the Winnipeg Women's High School Hockey League's junior varsity girls all-star game at 10 a.m. while Kevin, a Grade 11 player with the Dakota Lancers boys' team, has been named to the Winnipeg High School Hockey League's all-star game at 4 p.m.

"It feels really cool that we're both going to be there and I just find it to be really an honour to get to play in the all-star game," said Raegan, 14, who also plays for the St. Vital Victorias female bantam AA team.

Kevin said hockey has been something the siblings have been able to share throughout their lives.

"It's brought us a lot closer together because it's something we've always been able to do and talk about together," Kevin, 17, said. "She'll come to my games and she'll tell me something she noticed to help me and I'll go to her games and give her little tips where I can... It'll be a good experience (to both play in all-star games) and I'm really looking forward to it."

It is the second straight year Winnipeg's male and female high school hockey leagues will combine for an all-star extravaganza that includes four games in total. Also being played is the varsity girls' all-star game at noon and the boys' showcase game at 2 p.m.

The boys' showcase includes players from each of the 32 teams in the league while the all-star game includes players chosen by votes from league coaches.
