The Golden Jets U14 boys team, under the tutelage of coach Slobodan Stojanovic, surprised even themselves by winning the bronze medal at the recently concluded K-W Winter Classic tournament in Kitchener.

With many of the players in their first year of water polo, the expectations were not high entering the competition. However, the team opened up on Day 1 with a pair of victories against Guelph (11-7) and Hamilton (15-7) before dropping a close decision to the Mavs Red (7-9).

On Day 2, the Jets played their final round robin game, this time against the host K-W team. The teams went toe-to-toe throughout the contest which eventually ended in a 9-9 tie. The tie meant that the two teams would meet in a rematch later on to decide the bronze medal. This time, it was another see saw game but the Jets eventually prevailed 9-8 to win the medal.

Congratulations to coach Stojanovic and all the players!
