Northwood Girls Hockey alternate-captain, Georgia Bailey ’23, has been selected to represent her province as captain of the Team Quebec Girls U18 team at the Canada Games. All Canadian Provinces compete in these prestigious games every four years, with this year’s competition on Prince Edward Island. The games started on the 18th of February and ended on March 5th. Winter and Summer Games consist of various sports, making these Games similar to the Olympics. Team Quebec is historically the most successful province, winning 2,906 medals since the event commenced in 1967.

This astonishing achievement is an elevating step for Georgia and Northwood Girls Hockey. “Georgia truly deserves this achievement, she is a consistent leader at Northwood, her hard work and leadership has inspired others and has enhanced her game to the next level,” Coach Trevor Gilligan, her coach at Northwood, said. “I am extremely proud—she has definitely earned it. Being selected as the captain for Team Quebec is a terrific honor for her, which makes us extremely happy and proud. Her positivity has without a doubt positively impacted the Girls Hockey team at Northwood,” Gilligan added. “On our team she is our heart and soul at times. She is a go getter, and she plays a very aggressive style of hockey. She constantly pushes the team to achieve more in practice and games. She is always smiling, and her positivity is contagious. Georgia is a striving leader at Northwood who leads students on and off the field. She leads by example; she is up every morning doing extra training. No one is telling her to do those things. When you have those sorts of habits individually it becomes contagious amongst her teammates.”

The achievement is huge for Georgia. “Making Team Quebec means everything to me. Not only am I representing my province, but I am representing the hard work I put in every day. Having the chance to go to the Canada Games is an experience of a lifetime and I am honored to get to wear the Quebec jersey.”
Bailey credited Northwood for her success. “Northwood has helped me physically and mentally prepare for the Canada Games tournament. Northwood is my family; I have created special bonds with the girls on my team and I am grateful to be here. The Northwood Girls Hockey program is growing rapidly with effective new players and experienced coaches. The program is preparing the players for successful college or pro careers.”

Team Quebec dominated the Canada Games, winning 151 medals, 43 more than the closest competitor, Team Ontario. Georgia Bailey’s women’s hockey team finished the Games in fourth place, just out of medal contention.
