Successful season for Kelowna Ringette

Four Kelowna teams won medals at provincial championships

As the season comes a conclusion, there are many highlights for the Kelowna Ringette Association to reflect on during 2016-17.

Accomplishments for KRA teams at the competitive level included:

• The Kelowna U14B team won silver at the Fraser Valley tournament.

• The U14A team won silver in Fraser Valley, bronze at Kelowna’s own Sweetheart Tournament and gold at provincials.

• The U16B team won bronze in Vernon, gold in Richmond, silver at Sweetheart, gold in TORL Cup and silver at provincials.

• The U16A team, which recently arrived back from placing fourth at Westerns in Winnipeg, won silver in Burnaby, gold at Sweetheart, gold in TORL Cup and gold at provincials.

• Last year’s Western Canadian champions, Kelowna U19A, won bronze at Sweetheart and silver at provincials.

“I am so incredibly proud of our teams this past season,” said KRA president Lesley Driscoll. “To have all four of our teams that attended provincials play in the gold medal game is a testament to our outstanding coaches and the program we offer on and off the ice.

“Thank you to all our coaches, volunteers, players and families for your dedication and support of ringette.”

Next up is the KRA annual general meeting and awards banquet on Friday, April 7 at the Four Points Sheraton.
