Teams travel from all across U.S. for USA Pond Hockey TournamentSubmitted: 02/06/2016
EAGLE RIVER - Teams from all over the country came to Eagle River this weekend for the USA Pond Hockey Tournament.

One team even made their way from California.


 "There's no frozen lakes and ponds where were from," said Money Shots player Gretchen Tornabene.
For a team that doesn't get to ever practice out on lake ice, the Money Shots do pretty well.

"We're 3-0. We're hoping to win again. We won the division last year," said Tornabene. "So we're hoping to take home the cup.

This is the team's fifth year at tournament. While the team clearly knows their hockey, being out on Dollar Lake presents unique challenges for them to overcome.

"Staying warm and staying on our feet," said Tornabene. "This rink was really good so we had some good games here."

But they'll brave the cold, if not for the hockey then for the people.

"The people in Wisconsin, yeah we love them. And the cheese curds," said Tornabene.
