Two Central Alberta quidditch players won gold medals (surely a gold broom?) at the national championship in Victoria.
Ricky Boyce and Brian Gallaway from the Central Alberta Centaurs were invited to play with the Edmonton Aurors last weekend at the University of Victoria-hosted tournament.
They faced off against seven other teams from across Canada and were victorious, helping the Edmonton Aurors secure the Canadian title through an effective team effort, hard work and determination.
“We got there with teamwork and we finished it with teamwork,” said Boyce.
The inclusion of Boyce and Gallaway on the Edmonton team shows the Central Alberta club has some extremely strong players. It shows “just where the local quidditch club of Red Deer could be in a few short years as we continue to grow and prosper as a team,” said Centaurs president Jillian Staniec.
The muggle version of quidditch is played as described in the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling — only on the ground, instead of in the air. It has gained global popularity. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
