Coach’s Comments: Chloe is the heart and soul of our team. Being voted a captain as a junior and senior illustrates how her teammates feel about her. Her leadership in the locker room and on the ice is unmatched. She is the hardest worker on the team, always pushing to be better. Chloe is an exceptional athlete, excelling in three sports. She uses her athleticism to routinely make highlight reel saves. She has mastered all facets of the goaltending position – puck handling, rebound control and the mental game. Chloe has “stolen” multiple games for us this season, frustrating opponents each game. Chloe keeps us in every game, providing confidence to our players through her consistent play. We will miss Chloe on the ice for her stellar play, but even more so we will miss her as a person and as a leader of the team.
