PCI Saints Enjoying The Break

pci saints1 dec072012File photo

The Portage Collegiate Saints of the Winnipeg Women's High School Hockey League are midway through their well deserved Christmas break.  Head Coach Jo-Anne Clark-Gillespie says the girls have been playing some fantastic hockey leading up to this point in the season.  She notes the break is a great time for relaxation but encourages the girls to keep their conditioning up through the break.

"If you've looked at our schedule in January it's absolutely crazy.  We have 7 games in January and it's a short month because of exams.  So it's going to be tough.  We talked to the girls a little bit about time management and this is where they're going to learn how to be a student athlete coming in January, because they have a commitment to the hockey program but there's a commitment to their academics first."

Clark-Gillespie's goal through the month of January is to end with a winning record, something she says is doable.  The Saints currently sit in the middle of the pack with a 4-3-1 record.  The girls have been expecting a long month as 2 of their earlier games of the year were cancelled and put into January.

"It's going to be a tough month.  But you know, they're ready for the 2 weeks off too and we've been on the ice since September 10th so it has been a long time."

The Saints still have just over a week left on their break before they take to the ice on January 7th.  They'll face-off against the Oak Park Raiders at home in the PCU Centre.
