Teams from across the province competed at this year’s LiUNA Diamond Ringette Tournament in the Fort and one local team stood out.
 
The U12C Warriors scored a total of 31 goals in round robin play, defeating St. Albert, Edmonton and Calgary to advance to the finals.
 
"We've been really focusing on defence this year and we really started playing as a team," said head coach Andie Macmillan.
 
In the finals, Kloe Butler had two goals to lead the Fort to a 5-3 win over Airdrie for gold.
 
"We didn't go in with any expectations, so to come out with a win is really just a bonus," added Macmillan. 
 
Fort Saskatchewan U19B Ice
 
The Fort's U19 squad finished round robin play with a tie against the Fort McMurray Fusion.
 
In the finals, the rematch with Fort Mac didn't go as planned as the Fusion topped the Ice 12-5.
 
"Definitely playing four games over three days is tough for any team," said head coach Rob Phelan. "Our girls during the second period showed some push back and fight, but obviously just a little too late."
 
Fort Sask got two goals from both Payton Lozinski and Julia Sisson in the loss.
 
U10 Results
 
Fort Sask had four U10 teams in the LiUNA Diamond Ringette Tournament. The Ice Crushers and Ice Crystals finished 1-2, the Ice Kitties ended with a 2-1 record and the Ice Blasters avoided the loss column, finishing with a win and two ties.
