The championship victory comes on the heels of a pair of silver-medal finishes for North Langley at earlier tournaments in Cloverdale and Kamloops, respectively .

The Heat are now an impressive 29-2-1 on the season.

The U19 Heat team consists of Alexis Melville, Andria Coulbourn, Breanne Winters, Brielle Collins, Cassidy Russell, Emma Paradis, Hailee McMillan, Hailey Nowotny, Jenna Senft, Jess Hynds-Stewart, Kassidy Karras, Sarah Holmstrom, Taylor Cahill and Terae Walters.
