Sussex Sonics, Sussex NB
Fredericton High, NB
Charlottetown Raiders, PEI
Horton High, NS
Citadel High, NS
With 7 grade ten players, the Sonics are young but very eager. The Sonics are led by their three seniors and co-captains, Alex deWinter, Meg Snider and Hailey Bolt. The team is both quick and skilled; we rely on an aggressive defense and quick transition. The team is looking forward to the DTC and is very proud to represent their hometown of Sussex.
Moncton Purple Knights
The 2018/19 Purple Knights are back this year with another young and promising roster. We have been battletested early and ready to make a run at some of the top teams in the province. Knights 2.0 are a fast and athletic team with loads of offensive firepower that love to get up and down the court. Unselfish play and disciplined defense have been key factors with our early success. Although some teams may say we are still a year away, this squad is looking to change the conversation. We are very excited to be part of the Dairy Town Classic this year and compete against some of the top teams in Atlantic Canada
Fredericton Black Kats
The 2018-2019 edition of the FHS Black Kats is comprised of an experienced group of 8 graduating seniors, one grade 11, two grade 10, and one grade 9. The season has been busy to date with trips to Quebec City, Halifax, along with the Lions Den tournament and the Rick Cotter Classic. The Kats like to play a fast, up-tempo style of play and are looking forward to some great games and the awesome atmosphere that the Dairy Town Classic always brings!
The Charlottetown Rural AAA Raiders are the 3-time defending PEI champions. This year's team returns just 5 players from last year, providing a great opportunity for its young players to develop on the court. With some dedication and hard work, the team expects to improve as the season progresses and be ready to defend its Provincial title again this season.
The Horton Griffins hail from Wolfville, Nova Scotia, home of Acadia University, and a community with a strong basketball history. Horton is thrilled to be back at the Dairy Town Classic, one of the best tournaments in Eastern Canada! We look forward to defending our 2017 championship with four seniors, seven others from last year’s squad and two grade 9s. We will work hard to compensate for lack of height with quickness, pressure defense and high tempo play.
The 2018-19 Citadel Phoenix are a very young team this year. With 9 grade 10’s, it will be a big learning year for the young kids. Luckily, we have the leadership of our 5 returners, who helped lead the Phoenix to the Provincial Championship in 2018. We are looking forward to defending that title again this year with lots of hard work, early morning practices and running up Citadel Hill. Along with attending the Dairytown Classic, the Phoenix hosted our own tournament in December, attended the Rick Cotter Classic in Fredericton and the CEC Snowball in Truro. We are a fierce and competitive team with lots of energy and talent. We look forward to the Dairytown and are grateful for the invite to play in this tournament again this year. Best of luck to all the teams!
