Winslow returns with top prize

Newbury’s Madeleine Winslow returned home yesterday after playing on the national-championship winning U19 Tier 1 hockey team.

The Middlesex School junior returned on a red-eye flight from San Jose, Calif., with her Assabet Valley teammates, many of whom, like Winslow, were members of back-to-back national champion teams. Assabet Valley, a team based in Concord, posted a 1-0 victory over the Chicago Mission.

Winslow’s father, Pip, is a coach on the U19 Assabet Valley squad. He has coached her since her days in Triton Youth Hockey.

Madeleine learned to skate at age 3 in the Tiny Tots program at the Graf Rink. She started her organized hockey career at 4 playing as a Mite in Triton Youth Hockey. At 9, she joined the Assabet Valley Girls, a club juniors program.

Winslow’s Assabet Valley squad has won eight consecutive Tier 1 state championships (U10 to U19). The squad has won three national championship during that stretch, and also collected two silver medals and one bronze.

During the past season, the U19 team won the prestigious Stoney Creek Tournament in Canada, the NAHA Labor Day Championship in Vermont, the Assabet Tournament and the Wizards Christmas Tournament. The same squad played a Chinese national team at Harvard last fall and posted a 6-0 victory.

Winslow is an honors student and three-sport (field hockey, ice hockey, lacrosse) varsity athlete. She was an All-Independent School League selection in ice hockey each of the last two years. She has been invited to national development camps for the top 100 girls in the country.
