“A lot of hard work that went into this year and it’s just been a great week, but I couldn’t of done any of this without my team,” said Rowan Kimens on winning Gold and being named tournament MVP.

“We started this program with the staff five years ago, come along way – a lot of hours, a lot of adversity, but five years later we are here at the top,” said assistant coach Frank DiGioia on winning the gold medal.

“The tournament has been great all week from the Host Committee to the Volunteers and Officials. It has been a privilege for our Marlboro team to represent the GTHL and our club this week. The players and coaching staffs have worked all year to be here and it has shown every game. The memories will last a lifetime for these boys and families, and us coaches as well,” said Steve Devine, associate coach of the Toronto Marlboros on the All-Ontario Bantam AAA experience.
