SHMCC member Tom Clancy is very proud of the Daisies!
They recently became National Champions, beating all competition during the National's held in Iowa!
The Daisies might have the least macho name of any team in the hockey league, but this 14 year-old and under team won the division championship, NHL Breakout 97, recently held at Busch Gardens. As for naming the team the Daisies, according to Tom, this was intended to lower expectations: "We figured if we got beat, what could you expect from Daisies, and if we won, hey, you got beat by a bunch of Daisies!"
