Everyone had a good tournament this year with some of our juniors playing outstandingly. Seth Harker and Stephen Messier both brought home wins in each of their respective categories while James Huvenaars, Jeremie Kalgutkar and Sarah Nesbitt all played well in their devisions. Darian Peterson, Cace and Delaney Heffernan faced tough competition playing in the main division and Simone Hipfner gained a lot of experience participating in her first tournament outside of the NWT. Coaches Ozzie Vallejos and Jeff Hipfner are very happy with all results from this weekend of play.
