Hardware for Kelowna teams at Sweetheart

Eighty-seven teams compete in 27th edition of popular ringette tournament

Four teams from the host association earned some shiny hardware at the 27th edition of Kelowna’s Sweetheart Ringette Tournament.

The Kelowna Elite captured the gold medal in the U16A division.

The Kelowna Adrenaline won the silver medal in the U16B division, while the Kelowna Heat U19A and Kelowna Rage U14A earned bronze medals in their respective divisions.

One of the largest events of its kind in Western Canada, the three-day event last weekend—hosted by the Kelowna Ringette Assocation—featured 87 teams and close to 1,300 players in seven competing age groups.

Despite unfavourable weather and the closure of the Coquihalla on Thursday, only three teams were unable to attend the tournament.

Games were played at arenas Kelowna, West Kelowna and Lake Country, with the finals being contested on Sunday.
