Charlottetown, PEI (June 28, 2017)— UPEI Women's Hockey head coach Bruce Donaldson is pleased to confirm Island native Ally Clements will be joining the UPEI Panther program this coming September. Clements is from High Bank, PEI. She was the captain of the Kings County Midget AAA and a member of Team PEI U18 program that participated at the Atlantic Challenge Cup.
"We have watched Ally play over the past number of years," said Donaldson, "and what we really liked was her desire to compete when ever she is on the ice. Ally clearly likes the physical side of the game. She challenges her opponents and makes them work. Ally brings leadership to the program; she is big on community involvement and academically does very well."
"Since the age of four, hockey has been a huge part of my life," said Clements. "I love where I live, and I'm proud to be an Islander. To have the opportunity to put on a Panther jersey is something that I've always dreamed of. I'm looking forward to being able to play in front of all my family and friends and to be part of such an amazing program."
Clements is enrolled in the Faculty of Science, where she will specialize in Kinesiology.
