Yakima Hawks on their way to Regionals

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, Wash. - The Yakima Hawks Bantam team just won the AA State Championship in Spokane. The team hasn't brought home a trophy like that in decades. The 13-15 year-olds have advanced to the Regional Tournament in Anchorage on March 11-15. Former Ams Assistant Gordie Frantti is the coach.
"Pretty exciting time because they accomplished some goals they set for themselves," he said. "At the age of 14, 15 that's what you are trying to get them to do."
There's a fundraiser Saturday night. Just go skating at the ice rink in Yakima during the public session from 5-8 p.m.. All the proceeds will help pay for the team's trip to Anchorage.
