Omegas had an up-and-down 2017 season, but were able to earn some wins that helped them to finish 6th through regular season play. There were some welcome additions with Rebecca Englert and Ceilidh Marshall joining the team from indoor, but the team missed some key core players with Gabby Robson and Jenelle Umbsaar not being available to play for most of the season. Omegas faced off against a tough Cougars-White and lost their semi-final match. The team rebounded and persevered to finish on a good note and a 2 – 1 win over Roadrunners to finish 7th for the season!

BACK: Erin Roberts, Lori Smith, Ceilidh Marshall, Sahar Khan, Maryanne Umbsaar, Sandra Smith
FRONT: Chelsea Webster, Kelsey Fraser, Suzie Piechotta
LYING IN FRONT: Charlee Witschi (Guest Goalie)

MISSING: Meghan Armstrong, Melissa Cole, Natasha Cole, Rebecca Englert, Emily Gilman, Erica Johnson, Gabby Robson, Kat Van Waes

Titans Rebuilding for the Future

Titans was essentially a brand new team, as there were only 2 returning field players from previous seasons. As with all “new teams”, there were some growing pains as the team worked towards building some chemistry and consistency. The team played shorthanded for much of the spring, but started to slow develop and develop their team play. Hopefully, with a few more players continuing to play together through the indoor season and players who are going away for university studies returning next spring, the team will build a consistent core again and return to the success that the team enjoyed in previous years.

BACK: Maris Schneider (coach), Sahar Khan, Vageesha Sharma, Vydia Kassie, Charlene Le, Emily Connolly, Nicole Fung
FRONT: Pauline Huynh, Jenna Richardson, Kristen Murray, Alicia Becker
LYING IN FRONT: Keely Vanderwal

MISSING: Steph Tench (coach), Tiana Carroll, Alysha Creaghan, Laura Gillan, Beth Klassen, Brenna Lalonde, Erin Scott, Jasmine Tharagan, Kristina Wantola
