Transway Major Atom girls kick off with gold

Current provincial girls champions, the Transway Major Atom (grade 6) team, competing in their first tournament of the regular season, finished the weekend with a 4-0 record and repeated as gold medallists at the Dundas Dynamo ‘Kick Off’ Tournament recently.

This year’s tournament included teams from Kitchener, Welland, Toronto, Scarborough, and Hamilton. The Transway girls do not need to travel far to compete at the highest level of basketball, as four of the top eight teams in the AAA division last year were from the greater Hamilton area, and several were also competing at this tournament.

The Transway team members include players from Ancaster, Burlington, Dundas, Hamilton and Stoney Creek.
