Marmot Basin/Hostelling International Jasper Athlete of the Week for November 21-27, 2016
The 5'8" rookie forward from Calgary had her best weekend of the season, recording two goals and an assist in a split against the first-place NAIT Ooks. In the team’s home match on Friday, Ricker scored twice – the team’s second and fourth goals – in a 4-0 triumph for the Griffins. In the first period, Michelle Pochapsky intercepted a pass in the neutral zone and sprung Ricker on a breakaway for the first goal of her ACAC career. Her second goal was into an empty net late in the third period. In a 3-1 loss at NAIT on Saturday, Ricker set up Jessi Rampton for the Griffins’ lone tally.
Ricker is a first year Open Studies student. She's a product of the Calgary Fire Midget AAA team.
