William Lowe scored at the 4:59 mark of the first overtime period to win the Fall 2009 Championship for the Novice/Minor Atom Petes at the Barrie Ball Hockey Club this past weekend. Jackie Couture and Ciera Winterkorn assisted on the championship winning goal.
A group of Barrie’s best young ball hockey players captured the first ever Youth World Outdoor Ball Hockey Championship.
The Rock Solid Renegades, comprised of players from the Barrie Ball Hockey Club’s Progressive 9-11 and PeeWee divisions, traveled to Brampton during the weekend of August 28th to 30th in their quest to claim the Under-12 division title. Barrie teams also competed in the Under-15 and Under-18 divisions.
The youth tournament weekend was the first of three event weekends over the next six weeks as part of the “ballhockey.com” 14th Annual World Outdoor Ball Hockey Championships. Over the past 14 years, the Worlds have expanded to include Men’s A, B, and Over 35 divisions along with Women’s A and B tournaments. Teams travel to the tournament from all over North America, including far flung locations such as San Diego, Vancouver, Boston, Pittsburgh, Washington, New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Montreal. In addition to the new youth divisions, 2009 will mark the first ever Co-ed World Outdoor Championships. This is the first year as that the “Worlds” have expanded over three themed weekends: Youth – August 28-30 at the Brampton Ball Hockey Club; Women’s & Co-ed – September 25-27 at the Niagara Ball Hockey Club; and Men’s – October 2-4 at the Barrie Ball Hockey Club. By the time the Men’s tournament wraps up, more than 100 teams from all over North America (which translates into more than 1500 participants) will have competed for more than $30,000 in prizes.
