    Sad to hear that. I believe it’s the Erie Sports Commission, but Mercyhurst would have wanted to put on a good event so disappointing none the less. Have to think some of it is COVID related, more restrictions etc. will you go to penn state next year, or too early to say? I’m curious to see how that one goes.

      If my team is in I will definitely be there. I assumed it was not Mercyhurst. Given the women’s BBall fiasco- I fully blame the NCAA.

        I started a new thread on this subject, and invite you to expand on your thoughts there.

        My kick-off post focused on Covid safety, and I do believe the hosts kept us safe. I also concluded that the other choice on the ballot was likely no tournament at all. But contrary opinions are more than welcome, of course.

          Thanks PGB for starting a new thread. I will check it out.

          Right - I hope you have reason to go to another tourney soon and have a better
          experiemce! Especially with the day in between games, need city to buy in
          and be part of it

            From what I have read and interviews I’ve listened to.... Mercyhurst, Erie and the overall people including the NCAA did a great job with so many logistical issues in place with Covid.

            Seriously, someone is going to ridicule this ?
            Daily testing, crazy bus schedules, cleaning in between games etc etc. And you’re concerned about hoopla and exposure with what’s going on?

            These girls had an opportunity to play for a NCAA D1 championship, and were provided that opportunity in a safe environment due to the hard work of many individuals. Lots of work put into this.

                Congrats to Jenna Silvonen, sophomore goalie at Mercyhurst, who will represent Finland in the World Championships. Silvonen was on the 2019 worlds team as well, but I believe Raty played all the games. No Raty this year (rehabbing a knee injury and Covid travel complications) so it’ll be a new look Finland in net. Other goalies for Finland are 31 year old Meeri Raisenan and 24 year old Anni Keisala.

                  Congrats and good luck to Alexa Vasko who was named to Canada’s camp roster for Worlds tryouts. Vasko is a center, Hurst’s captain, and had 14 points in 18 games her senior season. She had a goal and an assist in Hurst’s playoff game this year.

                  Syracuse alum Allie Monroe was also named to the camp roster. She has been playing in Europe the past two seasons.

                  The isolation these players go through must be so intense. 2 week quarantine when you get to Canada. So I imagine no ice time, and just creatively working out at home. When they fly to camp, they have potential to be exposed, so more isolation once getting to camp? Maybe? I have my fingers crossed for this tournament.
