Alyssa Kawa, a Grade 12 student at St. Jean de Brébeuf Catholic Secondary School, has signed with Mercyhurst University for the 2021-2022 season.
The Hamilton native, who currently plays for the Stoney Creek Jr. Sabres, was named the top forward at the ESSO Cup in Sudbury last April. During the pandemic, she continues to balance her academics and hockey life, and helps train younger athletes at the Shoot House Hockey Development Centre several times a week.
Alyssa’s dedication and commitment to the sport hasn’t gone unnoticed and the Mercyhurst Lakers will be gaining a very talented, hardworking player. Congratulations, Alyssa.
