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.
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.

The Nova Scotia Open Goalball Tournament represents the only annual opportunity for local athletes to participate in an organized goalball competition east of Montreal.
This tournament attracts teams from several provinces as well as the USA and features Team Canada national players, several of whom are from the Atlantic region, and will be playing on their own club/provincial teams. As two-time national champs, the Nova Scotia men will be one of the tournament favourites to win the seventh annual Nova Scotia Open Goalball Tournament.
This tournament offers some of the best competition of the season. We hope to again attract a large audience to cheer on our local competitors.
