Jr. Sun Success!
The tackle football season has wrapped up for another year and our inaugural season as the Kelowna Junior Sun family was a spectacular success! The crowning achievement was our PeeWee Green team capturing the Provincial Champion title this past weekend for 9-man football, with solid wins over the Victoria Renegades and the Prince George Axemen.
Other highlights include the PeeWee Red fundraiser in support of the Canadian Cancer Society in a show of love and support for one of our own Football Moms fighting her battle with Cancer; Atom Grey hosting a fun post game BBQ for their rivals from Kamloops; And on the field, this season wrapped up with both Atom teams reaching playoffs and Green playing in the SIFC Final. The PeeWee Division of the SIFC saw all 4 Kelowna teams grab a playoff spot, with the Green and Blue playing a gritty Final battle with strong defensive play from both teams. In the Junior Bantam division, our Green and Blue teams secured playoff berths, however came up just short with strong competition from Kamloops and Salmon Arm respectively.
Thank you everyone for another wonderful season of tackle football in the Okanagan. The tradition of excellence continues and our programs are looking strong for years to come.
