"... She did a good job,” Stan Marple, the Guildford Flames coach, said. Bob Bramah, the league’s technical director, agreed, adding that Tottman deserved her black and white stripes. “The fact that she is female has nothing to do with it — she is there on ability,” he said.
Well if she doesn't need a guide dog, then she's got one up on half the male refs in this league!
Tottman has been officiating at the highest level — initially the Superleague, before that went bankrupt and became the Elite League — since 1999, but her journey as an official started when she was 11.
wow has the elite league been going all that time ;D
