August updates - National championships and more

Alberta had some success at the National stage, but ended up with no championships.
The Senior Men's team participated in Miramichi, NB and went 2-3.  Alberta did not field a team in the Junior division.  As mentioned previously, the Midget team took home a silver medal in Regina, losing to Ontario in the final.  The Bantam team also took a silver in Vaughan, ON,  losing to Quebec in the final game. Alberta sent 2  Peewee teams to the Western Championships in Nanaimo, BC, but neither one of them played in a medal game, as the host team took gold.

Closer to home, Lethbridge hosted the 16 & under championship tournament, which was won by Medicine Hat. The best players from this weekend will be representing Alberta on the 16 year old team at the Prospect Series in Swift Current starting on Friday, while the Alberta 15 year old team also participating there was picked from the Alberta Zone Championship.  Good luck to all the players selected!
