  • Motion reference: S5M-17107

That the Parliament congratulates Scotland’s first university women’s ice hockey team, the Caledonia Steel Queens, on winning the British Universities Ice Hockey Association (BUIHA) Women’s National Title in Nottingham with a perfect record; applauds the team's huge achievements in such a short period of time, particularly as the club was only officially formed in January 2018; notes that its successes include reaching three finals and one semi-final in the four national competitions that it has entered; considers the club to be a huge influence in attracting women to ice hockey given that the winning team included 15 new starts, and wishes the team well in developing new talent in future years.
