“This year’s team obviously thrives on tournament play. Outstanding record, gentlemen! Incredible effort in every single tournament game this season. We’re very proud of your skills on the ice and your conduct off the ice, too, at each tournament.” — U18 AAA Operating Committee
The Wolves headed to Peterborough (and area) on January 19th for their first appearance in the Peterborough Pete’s AAA Steve Richey U16 and U18 Tournament of Champions.
Thirty-three U18 AAA teams took part. Waterloo played seven solid games against very competitive teams. In a repeat of the Gold Puck Tournament in December 2022, it was a Waterloo-Ajax final, with the Wolves once again taking the gold. Our own Colby Booth-Housego was awarded Tournament MVP. Way to go boys and congratulations, Colby! We’re so proud of all of you!
Thank you to the organizers and volunteers at the Steve Richey Tournament of Champions for a great event.
