On Friday, September 9, the first-ever, full-time 10U and 8U all-girl hockey Washington Wild teams from the Western Washington Female Hockey Association (WWFHA) took to the ice for their first practice of 2016 at Highland Ice Arena in Shoreline – a first for Washington State.

On Saturday, October 1 the Washington Wild 10U team played their first-ever game at Highland at 1:45pm, defeating a boys’ team from SnoKing Amateur Hockey Association (SKAHA) 8-2.

The following weekend on Saturday, October 8 at Highland the Washington Wild 8U team played their first-ever game at 4:15pm against Kent Valley Youth Hockey Association.
