Bantam Female wins Bronze

Bantam Female participated in the inaugural Lorne Rowan Memorial Tournament in Abbotsford on January 19-21. They narrowly missed playing for Gold, but made the best of their Bronze Medal game. It was a solid effort by all team members, especially with the last 4 games all being played in less than 24 hours! Great work, girls!!
