Congee Cup Finale

6 weeks ago, 6 teams embarked on a quest… a quest for the Congee Cup. Finally, after a grueling round robin and intense playoff, we can now call TEAM 1, The Congee Cup Champions. Team 1 played with chemistry, never giving up and always working together to overcome the challenges they faced. When things didn’t go their way, they would huddle up and formulate a new plan of attack. For his performance and contributions to the team and tournament, Captain Isaiah has been named the 2017 Congee Cup Most Valuable Player.

An official count has not been made yet, but we raised almost $1000 in this year’s tournament with funds going to support the grade 8 graduation.

Planning, promoting and running this tournament is not an easy task. In fact, it would not have been possible without the dedication, commitment, and tireless effort of the Congee Cup Committee made up entirely of grade 7 and 8 students. They are the reason why the 9th annual floor hockey tournament was such a success. The setup, prep work, organization, and production of the tournament was flawless. It was their efforts off the court and on the sidelines that created a real Canadian hockey atmosphere inside the gym.

Once again congratulations to Team 1 and to all players and teams that participated in the tournament. We look forward to seeing some of you back next year and to welcome new students wanting to participate in the tournament.

Yours truly,

Congee Cup Commisioner M. Bendahan
