Underwater Hockey Taking Off In Sturgeon Bay



Door County's underwater hockey team, the Sturgeons, just returned from the national underwater hockey tournament where they placed 4th overall in the B- Division. The team competed against 13 other teams from across the nation in the three day tournament, playing four games each day.  

On day one, the team won just one of their games as they faced some challenging opponents while adapting to the fast paced tournament play and to a new style of defense designed by coaches Kendall and Sue Banks.

Day two saw the adjustments click with the team, and they tied their first game against Illinois.  They went on to win the three remaining games of the day, placing them in the 5th seed for playoffs on the final day of competition.

The Sturgeons won their first two games against George Mason University from Washington DC and against the Barnacles, a composite A-division team.  The Sturgeons played excellent matches in the high level semi-final games against the Sea Cucumbers from Washington DC and against Club Puck from San Francisco, losing both games by only one point each and placing them in fourth place at the end of the day.  

This was the Sturgeon's first appearance at the national level of competition, as the team has only been in existence for one year.

The team consisted of players (listed from back to front, left to right): David Foulds, Tim Feist, Albert Weber, Amy Ensign, Paul Filar, Trisha Filar, Sue Banks, Kendall Banks. Brendon Ewers, Robert Vernon, Molly Banks, and team managers Abby Banks and Owen Ensign-Foulds.  You can learn more about the Sturgeons and about the sport of underwater hockey at their team website:www.sbunderwaterhockey.com.  The underwater hockey team meets on Friday nights at 5:15pm at the Sturgeon Bay YMCA and is welcoming new members of all ages!
