Rebecca Johnston & Alannah MacLean

Way to go, Rebecca Johnston!  In the final game at the World Women's hockey championships, Rebecca scored with only four minutes left to take the game into overtime.  Team USA scored in OT to win the championship, but it was an excellent showing by both Team Canada and Rebecca, who scored four goals in five games and was Team Canada's top scorer.

Congratulations also, to Alannah MacLean. Alannah, who placed 3rd in the Canadian Junior Nordic Skiing Championships this winter (in the 7.5km), has been selected to enter the National Training Centre for Nordic skiing in Thunder Bay. She's one of only three female skiers who will attend the centre. Alannah moves to T-Bay in early July.
