It was a really busy weekend for Cyan, she had 2 hockey games on Saturday, and one hockey game and a practice (immediately following the game) on Monday evening.
Before the 3rd game, Cyan's head coach named her the team captain! Wow!
It's a huge honour in any case, but Cyan has only played hockey for one year, and there are a few girls ahead of her on the "depth chart", so I think that speaks volumes about her passion for the game and how quickly she's developed. But as the coach said, she is the team's "mother hen", and she has shown leadership qualities on the ice, especially with helping the girls that are new to the game.
I think she was surprised, and her teammates were really excited for her. I know she's really proud, as we are.
