The U16 TC Venom win GOLD at U18 Tournament
On the June 10 and 11th Weekend the U16 TC Venom won GOLD at the U18 Club Champions
Its a major feet to medal in any of these tournaments as the competition is very tough, but to have our U16 Venom combined with some help from some U15 girls were able to surpass all expectations and were ultimately victorious in their battles over the weekend
They beat Kelowna (always a competitive team) in a shoot out in the final, redeeming themselves to an earlier loss to the Kelowna Club. During a rough battle between the two Clubs for Gold the TC Venom found themselves short, when injuries began to toll on the team. Both Caitlyn and Sarah were taken out of the game as a result of injuries.
Pictured with Coaches Tienna Northgraves far left and Michelle Harrison far right are the U16 Venom. Missing from the photo were Sarah M Myah R, and Jewel C.
The TC Club is certainly very proud of accomplishments, and to all the teams that took part in the various Club Championships over the Junior Spring Season
Congratulations to the U16 TC Venom, way to go ladies
