They were born in 2000. They won a Bronze medal at 15U Provincials and a Silver medal at 14U East Nationals. They might also have been the best team our club as ever seen.
Sorry older Bandit alumni.
There may have been better individuals, and there may have been teams with higher finishes at 18U, but the 2018 class are the first team in club history to graduate every player to a post-secondary roster. They have all made significant impacts on their OUA, OCAA, or NAIA teams and we couldn’t be more proud of all of them!
