Major Atom get Silver in Hoop Classic

The Major Atom girls competed in their 1st sanctioned tournament this year, our own Belleville Spirits Tournament where we welcomed teams from Kingston, Cornwall, Goulborn, Gloucester, Durham and Picton.

The girls went undefeated in pool play: Defeated Kingston #2 team 39-13.  Sydney (9), Grace (8), Kaila H (8) Defeated Cornwall 19 -10.  Outstanding defensive effort against a very big team.  Kaila H (6), Brigid (4), Syd (4) Defeated Goulborn 36-16.  Again, another strong effort defensively.  Brigid (8), Grace (6), Emily, Kaila H, Syd, Melina and Madi each with 4.

In the Gold Medal Game, we faced a very big and talented Gloucester team and lost 29-17. I was very proud of the girls who, although young and undersized, held Gloucester in check in the 2nd half after spotting them a 22-6 lead at half.  McClellan, Berchervaise, Drain & Callahan were particularly strong on the defensive side of the ball.  Leading Scorer: Grace (8)

Tournament MVP was Sydney Drain.  Grace Callahan was team tournament scoring leader with 24 points.
