The “Dartmouth Wailers” host team was happy to welcome the 6 other teams representing the province to participate in the highest level of Pee Wee hockey in the province. As a Gold Sponsor, Mactech Distance Education staff is pleased to support these young athletes. “The Antigonish Bulldogs defeated the Truro Bearcats 6 to 4 in the final. It was a great tournament; kids and parents really enjoyed it – our host parents did an amazing job!” said Gord Gamble, tournament Co-chair.
“Supporting events like this is something we consider worthwhile because we understand the value in organized sports. They play an important role in improving behavior, health, social skills and have a positive influence on academic performance. This carries through into adulthood, creating strong independent learners.” said Jennifer Flynn, public relations at MDE.
A special thanks to MDE Graduate Robin Grandy, who was on hand for the official puck-drop and to present the Player of the Game award.
