Shuswap Ringette U14B Eliminators had lots of support from fans as they began their journey to provincials on Thursday, Feb. 13.
Mayor Nancy Cooper was on hand, making time in her busy schedule, to cheer on the girls.
In order to win the TORL cup and qualify for provincials, the Eliminators had to work through a three-game round robin and then clinch the finals. This accomplishment was achieved by the end of Sunday night, Feb. 16, with their solid win over Kelowna.
It was an exciting and nail-biting time for parents, players and coaches alike, with everyone proud to hang another banner in the Shaw Centre.
The Eliminators’ next step is the provincials which are being held March 7 to 9 in Prince George.
Over the next couple of weeks the players and parents will be participating in a few different fundraising ventures to help make this a special experience for the team.
Don’t be surprised if you have an Eliminator at your door collecting more bottles – or perhaps flogging their baking skills at the mall.
The members of the TORL Cup-winning Shuswap Eliminators include: Mariah Mitchell, Brooklyn Agricola, Tori Keehn, Marissa Materi, Madison Moore, Kassi Archambault, Jade Lutz, Jordan Turner, Stephanie Martin, Jaiden Clifford, Emilie Petryshen, Tamara Brown and goalies Taylor Thomlinson and Megan Clark
