  1. Dear Janet,

    I’m commenting on your story above…

    You have covered stories in the past on my girls, Madeline and Erin Stoklosa… They attend Mt. Mercy and play soccer and ice hockey for Mon. Martin. You also covered the story of Rocco’s {Dellevonue sp.?? sorry} U12 West Seneca Wings team coming in second place for Nationals 3 years ago. It was an exiting time for West Seneca and that organization.

    The reason for my email is to ask if you will be covering the try out for the Jr. Buffalo Sabres teams next month? My son, Robert will be trying out and we have not seen a try Out time for the March 10th date. He will being trying out for the Pee Wee major team coached by mark Mobus.

    Also, not sure if you’d know or feel comfortable in commenting on the try out selection if that has already taken place. I know there has been scouts out there for this new team for those who are selected.
    Can you help us? Thank you, Marilee Stoklosa – 863-2413
