Nova Scotia wins big at 22nd Montreal Open Goalball Tournament

We are celebrating two major wins for Nova Scotia goalball!

The Nova Scotia women’s goalball team, for the first time in history, earned a medal, taking 2nd place to all-star team ON, at the 22nd Monteal Open Goalball Tournament last weekend.

The Nova Scotia men’s goalball team came out on top, ending a 10-year dry spell and placing 1st, after defeating BC by 1 point in the gold medal game.

Nine people wearing medals around their next and smiling. Eight of them stand against a long goalball net and one sits on the floor in front of them.
The men’s team included Matt Gentleman, Griffin Hiltz, Peter Parsons, and Mason Smith. The women’s team included Contessa Scott, Tarah Sawler, Alexis Nickerson, and Alexis Meunier. Coach for both teams is Linda MacRae Triff.

Thank you Association sportive des aveugles du Québec – ASAQ and all involved in hosting the event.
