Several members of the Nova Scotia u18 team competed in the Limelight Showcase in Lancaster, Pennsylvania from June 12-14th. The 7-a-side event is held at Spooky Nook, the official training facility of the US national team. Alex Tutty (Dartmouth) and Julia Jorgensen (Sackville) competed this year for the second time while Haley Whitman (Halifax), Katie Michelin (Halifax) and Brianna Samson (Fall River) went to the showcase for the very first time and impressed their American counterparts. The girls played extremely well and they significantly improved upon the results from last year. The team finished 3rd in their pool with a final record of 2 - 2 - 2.
This is considered a recruitment tournament, and gave the girls great exposure to American Universities as well as an opportunity to have professional videographers to create highlight videos for the girls to use to send to CIS Universities.
Another group of athletes from the provincial program will be travelling to Providence, Rhode Island later this summer to compete in the 4Goals Cup.
