A Record Year for the Highlanders

The Grey Bruce Highlanders, as an organization is getting close to the end of one of its best regular seasons ever. With two new teams in the Atom division this year as well as competitive teams from minor peewee to Major Midget, the Highlanders have many successes to brag about this year.

The Minor Atom team has been the cream of the crop in the SCTA all season, sitting in first place in the standings, made the finals of two tournaments and won the Kitchener Octoberfest Tournament. Grey Bruce’s other first year team has also found its share of success, showing that it will compete in every game, has beaten eight of its nine opponents in league play, won the Rochester tournament earlier in the year and has proven to be one of the best Atom teams in the history of the Highlanders.

The Minor Peewee team has hit its stride of late, getting a few big wins and currently sits in the middle of the SCTA standings. This team works hard and competes in every game, and outplays opponents for parts of every game. The major peewee team is a force in the SCTA supported by a 10 game unbeaten streak at one point in the season, the team picks up its play against the higher ranked teams in the division, showing an ability to step up when it matters.

The Minor Bantam team has reason to be excited as it finished the regular season with three wins to take fourth spot in the standings and made it to the finals last weekend of the Great Lakes Cup Tournament. The Bantam team is heading into the playoffs with the knowledge that it has beaten seven out of its nine opponents in league play, showing they can compete and do some playoff damage.

The Minor Midget Highlanders are in a great position sitting in a tie for 5th place and facing teams that they have beaten this year. The team is heading into the new playoff style with round robin games against, Burlington, Southern Tier, Hamilton and Guelph. The Midget team, with our longest serving coach, has an excellent record, sitting six games above .500 at this time.

With an organizational record twelve games above .500, competing hard in every game and showing an ability to beat any team in the league, the Highlanders organization is taking the SCTA by storm, looking forward to doing some damage in the playoffs and continue to develop high level hockey players. Go Highlanders Go!!
