Charlottetown, PEI (April 21, 2017)—UPEI Women's Hockey coach Bruce Donaldson confirmed Camille Scherger has committed to play for the Panthers. Scherger is from Lloydminster, Alberta.
"When we went looking for a goaltender, we had a number of teams out west tell us to go see Camille play," said Donaldson. "She works especially hard, has a goals-against average of 1.92, and a save percentage of .93."
Scherger began her minor hockey career in Lloydminster, playing boys hockey until Midget. She played Midget AAA this past season for Red Deer in the Alberta Female Hockey League. She led the league in minutes played, and ranked second for saves.
"I knew I wanted to become a UPEI Panther the day I stepped foot on the amazing campus as it had an atmosphere that I could see myself playing and learning in," said Scherger. "Charlottetown also has a hometown feel and that was important for me, coming from a smaller city in Alberta. Meeting Coach Donaldson and some future teammates helped with my decision, because I felt like part of the team from the moment we met. I am extremely excited to become a Panther and get things started in the fall."
