Canadian Junior Ringette Squad win GOLD at the 2019 World Ringette Championships held in Burnaby, B.C. from Nov 25th 2019 to Dec 1st, 2019

A trio of Manitobans came home from the World Ringette Championships with gold medals.

The Canadian Junior Ringette Squad defeated Finland 9-7 in Burnaby, B.C., to finish the tournament in first place.

"The first game we started off a little rough. But the last game, we really supported each other and worked together," said Brett Van Nieuw Amerongen, a defenceman from La Salle. "It feels pretty good (to win gold). It’s crazy."

Making the trip to Burnaby from Manitoba with Van Nieuw Amerongen was forward Taylor Hildebrand from Oak Bluff.
There was also a Manitoban behind the bench as assistant coach, Danielle Hildebrand hails from Oakbank. This was the first time Van Nieuw Amerongen and Hildebrand had made the Canadian junior team.

"It’s nice to represent Canada. I’ve played with Taylor pretty much my whole life, so I’m glad we got to do this together," said Van Nieuw Amerongen, who had an assist in Game 1. "I’ve seen Danny around the rink so many times, so it was nice to have somebody from home on the bench with us."

Van Nieuw Amerongen, 19, and Hildebrand, 20, are also teammates back home for the Manitoba Intact.  The duo will return to playing with their club. Van Nieuw Amerongen said the experience of playing for their country is something they’ll never forget.

"They did a jersey reveal and I think that’s when it really hit us. Just being able to actually put it on was pretty surreal," said Danielle Hildebrand.

Congratulations Brett, Taylor and Danielle!
