April 2018 – Building on a highly successful season, this hard-charging Blackburn Stingers Peewee A team finished 1st in its division, and powered through the playoffs to win the GHA League Championship in stunning style. In cementing a 5-4 comeback victory over Orleans in the final game, the Stingers’ Championship Team demonstrated greatness and resilience, and proved that success comes with a winning mindset. Prior to becoming crowned Champions, the Stingers persevered in highly competitive Round Robin playoffs. During the semi-finals, the Stingers imposed their will on Leitrim by outpacing, outplaying and outscoring the Hawks in a compelling 4-1 victory.
The Stingers’ combined season record of 32W – 5L – 2T with tournaments and playoffs, included winning the Championship at the Dukes Showdown, and being Finalists in Capital House League Championships. The team’s well-earned place in the BMHA Hall of Champions is directly attributable to a season-long commitment to conditioning, strong team play, hard work (and incrementally harder practices!), balanced contributions from all players and an unbreakable, positive attitude. “BEE-LIEVE!!!”
