“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.
