Bartlett, Rachel ’94 - Hockey

Rachel distinguished herself on Ridley’s soccer, field hockey and ice hockey teams, serving as captain and earning MVP titles in all three sports during her time at the school. Not surprisingly, she capped off her campus career in 1994 by winning the Dorland Trophy for Female Athlete of the Year.

Rachel went on to play field hockey at the University of New Brunswick, where she was named Rookie of the Year, travelling west with her champion Atlantic division team to the national championships. Her sports success extended to south of the border, where she was both member and team captain of women’s ice hockey team, St. Louis Force, competing in national tournaments across the United States.

But Rachel’s favourite sporting memory brings her right back to the Ridley campus; she recalls the support the school showed for its field hockey team during critical games. “The school would let out early to watch,” she says, recalling, “many friends and teachers cheering us on.”

These days, Rachel’s an enthusiastic supporter of youth sport, serving as both board member and general manager of the St. Louis Rocket Youth Hockey Club, and coaching her own two young children.
