Belleville’s Braedyn Irwin has played in a world championship in her own backyard.
Now, she’ll play in a Canadian championship on the West Coast.
Irwin, a 17-year-old Grade 12 student at Moira Secondary School, has been selected to play for the Team Ontario women’s hockey team at the 2017 Canadian Aboriginal championships, May 1-6 in Cowichan, B.C.
In 2016, Irwin played for Team USA at the IFF U19 women’s world floorball championships in May at the Sports Centre. As a Native Canadian, Irwin was eligible to play for Canada or the U.S. and agreed to leave the Canada camp and bail out a shorthanded American squad on the eve of the tournament by joining Team USA.
This year, Irwin represents her home province, in hockey, on Vancouver Island.
