Carleton Invitational, Jan 13-14, Ottawa

Carleton Invitational is the second biggest team tournament in Canada after the famous RMC Invitational in Kingston. It is a well-organized and friendly tournament. Last year, our ME team earned silver medals for finishing 2nd among 26 teams! This year, it is the turn of girls to make history.

ME Teams: With one defeat at 44-45 in the first round, our team (Jean-Claude Beaudoin, Alain Lefebvre, Alexei Perepelkine) was ranked 7th after the pools. Unfortunately, they lost in the round of 16, thus finishing 11th (out of 23).

WE Teams: With a perfect score of all victories, our team (Swee Leng Tan, Elena Frantova, Natalie Wee) was ranked 1st after the pools. They lost 44-45 to the silver medalist team from Ottawa, thus finishing 3rd (out of 15) with nice bronze medals. Congratulations, team! This result is yet another landmark for the team who finished 4th (out of 27) at the challenging RMC Invitational in November 2006 (with Anna Raffier as a substitute).
