The Bemidji Bantam B players, parents and coaches would like to give a huge THANK YOU to Bemidji Youth Hockey, area businesses and individuals associated with the team who donated their time, resources and money to help the Bemidji Bantam B team make the trip to the Minnesota Bantam B State Tournament. You helped make our trip a once-in-a-lifetime, memorable experience and we sincerely appreciate everything you did!
We'd also like to thank all of the fans, friends and relatives who made the trip to Prior Lake to cheer for Bemidji. You were awesome!
On behalf of the players and parents, we want to give a huge shout out to coach Vinny and Darren for taking a team that was 4-4-1 at the start of the year and guiding them a 27-11-4 record and to what none of the boys (or parents) thought was possible - a Region Championship and a trip to state.
On behalf of the coaches and parents, thank you to all of the players for sticking together, having fun and working your tails off all year. Each player was friendly, well-mannered, and respectful on and off the ice all season. Your outstanding sportsmanship and respectful behavior was acknowledged by officials, directors, players, and fans in Prior Lake at the state tournament. The Bantam B team is a class act - you should be proud of how you represented the team, BYHA, and the City of Bemidji. We commend you!
