“The girls did amazing,” Devine said. “Both Jay and I were so impressed, not only with how we the girls played, but with their teamwork, how positive they were (and) the energy they brought,” she said.

“This being their first ever play day, they really learned a lot—physically and mentally.”

Devine and Dyer also appreciated the parents who drove the 11-member team to Victoria and volunteered as scorekeepers and linespeople.

The Airborne will host a playday in Port Alberni on Sunday, March 10.

The Airborne will also compete in the Islands April 13–14 in Nanaimo, and again at the provincial championships April 26–28 in Abbotsford.

SIDE OUTS…The Alberni Airborne has more than one team this year comprising girls 11–16 years…The Airborne’s season runs from January to early May…The Airborne will host the U16 Island championships from April 20-21. Location TBA.
