“I’m not sure how I can encapsulate what we went through over the past four days, suffice it to say the girls played amazingly well and represented our school in extraordinary fashion. We went into the tournament with a low seeding due to having to qualify via a wildcard tournament the previous weekend. In our run to the final we had to defeat Handsworth (#4 ranked team in the province), Lord Tweedsmuir (the #3 ranked team) and Earl Marriot (the #1 ranked team). In the Gold Medal final we faced Handsworth again, and put on a dominating, at times nearly flawless performance to defeat them in their home gym in front of a very pro-Handsworth crowd (although our parents held their own in the cheering department). These kinds of achievements don’t happen without an entire team effort. Our eleven girls overcame adversity time and time again at this tournament and over this season. We also had amazing support from Belmont staff and students – we received constant updates that back at Belmont everyone was behind us through-out the whole four days and for us that was a huge source of inspiration. Thank you to all those who texted, snap-chatted, instagrammed, e-mailed, phoned and otherwise passed along that they were following and wishing us luck. And I personally want to congratulate and thank the wonderful players I was coaching on this adventure in North Vancouver – Atessa, Kendra, Olivia, Taylee, Jocelyn, Gracie, Sydney, Miranda, Devon, Hannah, and Savannah – the 2016 AAAA Girls Provincial Champions!! Another big blue banner to proudly be raised in our gym. – Mike Toakley”
