U14 “Flying Squirrels” Take Silver In Beaconsfield Tournament

Congratulations to our U14B team, the Flying Squirrels, who brought home silver medals from the Beaconsfield tournament last weekend. Head Coach Rob MacDonald shared this awesome report from the tournament:

Going undefeated into the finals, we ran into a great team from Bellechasse who handed us our fist loss of the season, 6-2. We’ve been having a great season, up to the finals we were 17-0! Amazing.

What humbles me the most… was the way in which the team dealt with the loss. No tears, just smiles. YES, they were disappointed. BUT they know that sportsmanship is more important than winning, and there is a level of pride on this team that even though they lost, they tried. We’re not going to win them all, and they are ok with that.  They hugged one another, and praised one another, and gladly accepted their placement. The team we played was excellent. They were ready. They wanted it. They should have won, and they did. That doesn’t make the loss easier to take but in life sometimes that’s the case.

We were cheered on by our friends from the U14C Wild Spirits, who were also at the tournament and at same hotel. It was awesome to have the support and hang out together when we could. Thank you Wild Spirits!

This weekend was a humble reminder that we still need to put the work in 100% of the time. The kids are already talking about getting another winning streak going.

Here is the usual pic of the medals. More importantly, we wanted to share the post finals picture of our positivity hug!

Go Flying Squirrels!!

WORA Alumni Earn National Title At University Challenge Cup

Congratulations to WORA Alumni Mahren Young and Ashley Franko, members of the Brock University Badgers Ringette Team who recently won a national title at the University Challenge Cup, which was hosted by Laurier University and Ringette Ontario from December 27-31, 2019.

The Badgers skated undefeated through the three-day tournament to finish with a record of 9-0.

This was the first UCC title for the Brock Badgers, and only the second Ontario university team to win the tournament, in its 22 year history. 

Mahren and Ashley were both long-time WORA players, and last played together for WORA in 2015-2016 at U19A. They currently play on the same offensive line for Brock. Ashley is in her third year of studying Public Health, while Mahren is in her fourth year studying Sport Management and will be graduating in June 2020.

Congrats to Mahren and Ashley, and best of luck from your friends at WORA as you compete for the rest of the season.
