The team lost the second game of the tournament, but the girls battled back to victory, winning the next four consecutive games. The champion Ice team includes (top row, from left) coaches Rico Rivera, Andrew Koenig, Corby Burns and Joshua Pesikoff, (middle row, from left) coach Caroline Cox and players Alli Hill, Summer Ames, Franny Rapp, Kelsey Koenig, Sophia Rodriguez, Emma Poirot, (bottom row, from left) Tali Kalmans, Yeli Rivera, Kate Bolger, Raegan Burns, Theophane Polydoros and Lily Pesikoff.
