West Chester, PA – The Philadelphia Jr Flyers Girls are thrilled to announce the commitment of 2021 forward, Alyssa Wruble, to the University of Maine (NCAA D-I). The Black Bears are a member of the Hockey East Conference, along with: Boston College, Boston University, UConn, Holy Cross, Merrimack, UNH, Northeastern, Providence, and Vermont.
Wruble is currently a winger for the 19U T1 team and is in her 2nd season with the Jr Flyers. She attended the 2019 USA Hockey 16/17 National Development Camp in St. Cloud, MN. Wruble is an elite speedster that competes hard in all 3 zones and is always a threat on the ice. Her skating ability and aggression keeps defenders on their heels as she pushes the pace up ice. Wruble is a high-motor player that plays with grit, making her excellent on the forecheck, backcheck, and penalty kill.
On her commitment, Wruble said “I chose The University of Maine because as soon as I stepped onto campus, it felt like a second home. I felt that it was the right fit for me all around - academically and athletically. I couldn’t have done it without the help of my friends, family, and coaches”.
Congrats and good luck to Alyssa! University of Maine – Class of 2025.
The Philadelphia Jr. Flyers are proud to announce the commitment of an original Jr Flyer Girl, Syd Bradley, to Alvernia University (NCAA D-III). Alvernia is a 2nd year program, located in Reading, PA that competes in the Mid-Atlantic Conference (MAC), along with Kings, Wilkes, Lebanon Valley, and Stevenson.
Bradley is currently a Center for the 19U T1 team and is in her 6th season with the program. During her time, she has been a leader on and off the ice, wearing a captains’ letter to 14U Nationals in Marlborough, MA. and to 16U Nationals in Irvine, CA.
Bradley is a solid two-way player that possesses a high hockey IQ. In the offensive zone, she is at her best when playing below the dots, as she protects the puck and works along the walls extremely well. She also has great instincts and finishing ability around the net, which lead to many of her goals.
Of the commitment, Bradley said, “I chose Alvernia because it had a great atmosphere and felt like home. I feel like I will fit right in with the team and coaching staff. I’d like to thank my family, coaches, and teammates for all their help and support throughout the years.”
West Chester, PA – The Philadelphia Jr. Flyers Girls are thrilled to announce the commitment of Makayla “MJ” Javier to Robert Morris University (NCAA D-I) for 2022-23. The RMU Colonials play in the College Hockey America (CHA) Conference, with: Lindenwood, Mercyhurst, Penn State, RIT, and Syracuse.
Javier is in her 3rd season with the Jr Flyers and serves as an Alternate Captain on the 19U Tier I team. The right-handed defenseman plays a strong 200-foot game, emphasized by a high-compete level, on and off the puck. Her feet and hands make her confident in making plays under pressure, as she reads the play well. Javier’s blend of speed, skill, power, and physicality make her a top-tier defenseman that can play in any situation.
Jr Flyers Girls GM/Coach, Chris Baer, noted “MJ had so much natural ability when she came to us a few years back. She was powerful and raw, but we have enjoyed watching her develop into such a consistent and reliable two-way defender… What has really allowed her to make that next step is her increased understanding of the game. The improvements she has made with her hockey IQ and puck support have helped turn her into an elite defenseman.”
Javier announced her commitment through social media, stating, “Honored to announce my verbal commitment to play D1 hockey at Robert Morris University. I want to thank my friends, family, teammates, and coaches for helping get to where I am today #gocolonials”.
Congrats, MJ! RMU Class of 2026.
