Asheville Inline Hockey League’s 14U travel team, Asheville Mountaineers
Asheville, N.C. — May 20, 2016. The Asheville Hockey League’s travel team, Asheville
Mountaineers, won first place in the 14U division at the Echo Travel Lite Inline Hockey
Tournament Series Finals in Snellville, Ga. The tournament, which brought together teams
from the Atlanta area, Gainesville and Jacksonville, Fla., Asheville, N.C., and Nashville,
Tenn., took place April 23-24.
"The AHL youth league started competing in the Echo Tournament Series in 2014, but this is
the first year the team took home a win," said Tadd Cole, youth league coach.
"This year's first place is a testament to the players' hard work over the years, and the
dedication of all of the volunteer coaches that donate their time and knowledge to help shape
these young players," said Cole. "These kids represent the best sportsmanship of Asheville
hockey on and off the rink."
The 14U team headed by AHL youth coaches, Cole and Jeff Slosman, included seven local
players: Adian Cole 12, Zach Goforth 12, David Mahan 13, Jake Shanken 13, Bennett
Slosman 13, Bredan Sobol 14, and goalie Zach Shanken 14. The team was joined at the
tournament by player Cam Bradach, 13, of Roswell, Ga.
AHL continues to grow options for more teams to compete in the travel league, and hopes to
add additional age groups in the coming year. Travel teams compete in 2-4 tournaments a
year, and practice schedules vary.
