This past weekend the U12 Provincial Petite Sault Ice Hawks attended the 2018 Provincial Ringette Championships Tournament in Waterloo and skated home with the Bronze medal! The team was made-up of 12 dedicated and talented Sault girls (10 and 11 year olds).
Competing in a division of 6 tough teams, the Ice Hawks were seeded second through the round robin portion of the tournament with a record of 3 – 1 – 1. After conceding the first game to a rough and tumble Timmins team, the eventual gold medal team, the Ice Hawks pushed through the remaining round robin games winning 3 and tying one. The Hawks rode tough team defence and goaltending through the weekend, giving up an average of only 1.5 goals per game over the final 4 round robin games. The semi-final game saw the Sault square off against Newmarket in a close game where the Ice Hawks fell 3-2.
Ringette is a fast-paced, physical sport played mainly by women and girls of all ages. The Sault Ringette Club, established more than 30 years ago, provides instructional and competitive opportunities for all ages from 4 and up.
