Western Canadian Ringette Championships day One
What a busy day for WCRC so far! Games started at 8 a.m. on all four rink surfaces at Markin MacPhail WinSport’s Canada Olympic Park.
Last night Opening Ceremonies and the U14AA Skills Event took place. Opening Ceremonies were amazing to watch. Abby Willerth of U14AA Calgary Crossfire started off opening ceremonies with singing the national anthem. Paul Geddes introduced Beth Veale who was recently inducted into the Ringette Canada Hall of Fame and Paul presented Beth with a quilt- made for her specifically- that represents the different parts of ringette she has been involved with. The ceremony ended with a speech from Jackie Richards answering the question ‘What is ringette?’
U14AA finished their first round of games today, and each team will be playing two games tomorrow. The schedule can be found here and will be updated frequently throughout the day. In Pool A Team Saskatchewan came in first with St. Albert Mission in second, and Eastman Flames in third. Team Alberta came in first in Pool B with Edmonton Elite and Saskatoon Saints in second and third. Manitoba came in first for Pool C while Calgary Crossfire came in second with Zone 5 Edge in third. For Pool D British Columbia came in first with Manitoba Magic in second, and Calgary 212 in third.
Good luck to everyone in the rest of your games! It is some amazing ringette to watch and I can’t wait to see more.
Games start at 8 a.m. tomorrow morning and go until 9 p.m.
Tomorrow will be another busy day full of ringette and it’s the one of the one best ways to spend my day!
Here are today’s results!
