Alumni lead U18AAA Wild to a championship
Led by two WMEMS alumni, the Winnipeg Wild defeated the Winnipeg Bruins over Spring Break to win the U18AAA Hockey League Championship.
Winnipeg Mennonite Elementary & Middle School (WMEMS) graduates Aidan Wuerfel (2019) and Cole Robertson (2019) helped their team to victory, winning the best-of-five series 3-1. Both students attended WMEMS from Kindergarten until Grade 8 at our Bedson Campus.
At the start of the season, the Wild added both players to their leadership group, naming Robertson team captain and Wuerfel assistant captain. Both players responded, with Robertson leading the team in goals and Wuerfel leading the team in assists. That strong play continued in the playoffs, with both players contributing a point-per-game combined.
The Wild goaltender, Nicolas Rempel, also has a WMEMS connection; he is the son of Katherine Friesen's grade 5 teacher, Gina Wedel.
Congratulations to the Winnipeg Wild, and to our alumni, on their win.
