Team Alberta North Earn Silver Medal at 2012 Arctic Winter Games
The 19U Men’s Team Alberta North returned from Whitehorse, Yukon with a silver medal from the 2012 Arctic Winter Games.
The Arctic Winter Games is the world’s largest northern multi-sport and cultural event. The Games include the participation of teams from Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, Alberta North, Nunavut, Greenland, Yamal, Nunavik Quebec and Sapmi.
After finishing their round robin play with a 7-2 record, the team quickly disposed of Alaska in straight sets in the semi-final. That semi-final victory put Team Alberta North up against the Yukon in the championship match. After previously losing both round robin games to the Yukon, Alberta was looking for a different result but was defeated once again in straight sets.
Alberta Volleyball is proud of the accomplishments of team and how they represented their province at this competition. The 2012 Team Alberta North members were:
