Maynard said: "This was a very competitive tournament. Christ Church put players in the championship match in 5 of the 7 divisions and was able to win 4 titles which insured their tournament win. The next four teams were really close, with only 4 points separating second and fifth places. We had a lot of close matches. All the girls played hard and showed great sportsmanship. I expect to see most of these teams do well in the playoffs again this year."
