Colorado youth hockey teams invaded the Windy City recently, as the Arapahoe Warriors Youth Hockey League entered seven teams in an annual Chicago tournament.
The local teams may have had an advantage from training in the Mile High altitudes as all seven teams made their way into the championship rounds of the three-day tournament.
Between May 19 and May 21 the teams traveled throughout the Chicago suburbs to participate in the annual Windy City Spring Classic hockey tournament.
The tournament featured teams from Colorado, Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota for age groups between 8 years old and 18.
The Arapahoe Warroirs Youth Hockey League announced on May 22 that of the seven teams, four of them brought back first-place championship banners in 10U A, 10U B, 12U B and 14U B.
The remaining three teams finished the tournament in second place.
