CYA U19: Alexis Molotky
The 1993-born Molotky came to CYA for a PG year. “Alexis has been a true competitor this season and has earned everything she has received, ” said Head Coach Anthony Booth. "Alexis is very excited to be joining the Lions program, which is led by head Coach O'Mara."
“I wanted to thank my parents and family for all their support over the years I have been playing hockey,” said Molotky. “I also wanted to thank the Devine family for making me feel like part of their family. I was very nervous about billeting this season but thanks to CYA I am leaving Chicago with a new extended family in the Devine's."
Molotky becomes the 7th CYA player on this year’s roster to hold a commitment to an NCAA program (with others on the way).
“I am very excited for Alexis. She has battled hard for us this season and Lindonwood is not only getting a great tender, but also a great person,” says girls director John Cimba. “ I wish the Molotky family the best of luck and I look forward to watching Alexis progress at the next level.”

CYA U16: Morgan Crane
The CYA U16's are proud to announce our 4th commitment. Morgan Crane will join team mate Maddie Hartman at Northeastern University for the 2015 season. Crane is going to bring strength and toughness to the Huskies. She has been one of the toughest Forwards to play against at the U16 level. Her size, strength and shot have been a lethal combination for both defenders and tenders all around the country. Crane currently sits 2nd on the team with 29pts in 29 games played.
“Morgan's commitment, dedication and work ethic has been tremendous and she is only going to get better at the next level" said John Cimba. "She isn't afraid to make the kinds of sacrifices a D1 power forward makes. I am very happy for Morgan and the entire Crane family and thank them for not only their dedication to CYA, but also for their dedication to the game".
Way to go Crane!!!!!
