The Juneau Jamboree women’s hockey tournament enjoyed its 10th year of competition at the Treadwell Ice Arena. Players came mostly from Juneau, but some traveled from Homer, Anchorage, Fairbanks and even Montana for an eight-team, three-day event. It’s the first tournament at Treadwell this year and represents growth in women’s hockey. The tournament featured six teams last year.
