Six goalies from Minnesota -- four boys and two girls -- are participating in the Warren Strelow national goaltending camp, which began today in Ann Arbor, Mich., and runs for four days.
The boys there are Vaughan Ahrens of Wayzata High School, Zach Driscoll of Eastview, Ryan Edquist of Shattuck-St. Mary's and Drew Scites of Compuware Midgets. Scites is from Maple Grove.
There are 25 boys and 12 girls at the camp.
The two girls, both from Minnetonka High School, at the camp are Hannah Ehresmann and Sydney Rossman.
Ahrens and Rossman were at the goaltending camp last year, too.
