The U23 Nationals came to an end on Canada Day, and all the BC teams had notable performances, with Team BC securing gold medals among women and men.

Throughout the competition, the women’s BC Rams and Ontario developed a healthy rivalry, facing each other three times in total.

BC Lions came in third place and, despite getting no wins in such a tight tournament, they were all smiles in recognition of their great effort.

Battle of BC

The U23 Men’s National was decided between the BC Lions and BC Rams. While the Rams dominated the pool stage, earning 13 points out of 15 possible, the Lions confirmed the second place only in the final minute of their last game against Ontario.
