For 4 seasons going on 5, sophomore defensemen Tara Tomimoto has been skating in the same pair of Bauer skates.
She started using these skates in Grade 10 from her Calgary, Alberta hometown. Today, duck tape and all, these skates have been Tara’s go-to wheels due to her incessant stubbornness. She would get a new pair, not like them, and send them back. We are sure that the Bauer Company knows her by name. These skates look like they are one shift away from collapsing! Hopefully the new Bauer Total One Custom Skates that she used in practice yesterday will be suitable enough to sustain Tomimoto’s mind. You just never know by next week she maybe back in her old pair! For now, it’s a miracle!
