2017 Season Is Over – Many Thanks

The KW Braves season ended on July 19th with a loss to Brampton Excelsiors, losing the best of five series 3-0.  All the best to the Excelsiors in their drive for the Minto Cup.  

2017 had a very slow start for the Braves as we awaited the return of numerous players into the lineup.  As we neared the end of the season, the Braves did get on a roll and were able to take the 7th spot in the standings with an exciting OT win in our final game.  Losing the series to Brampton hurt, although we were the underdog, we expected and wanted to win.  The Braves have a youthful core of players and we know our better years lay ahead of us but that doesn’t take the pain away from losing.  The pain is especially hard for the 4 players that are graduating.  We wish these four young men all the best in the future.  You will all be missed but a special thank you to Connor Cole our captain who played his 5 full seasons with the Braves.  Thank you.

To the entire board of directors, thank you for your year round efforts in helping to keep the KW Braves alive and well in junior lacrosse.  We made great strides this year and none of this would have been possible without your dedication.

To our coaching and management staff, Chris Driscoll, Corey HallmanKevin LorchSteve Keleher and Jeff Williamson, thank you for your perseverance, patience and commitment.  2017 didn’t go as planned but the with all of your guidance and leadership, there was no quit in the Braves.  Start planning for next year now, we see good things.

Elora Mohawks, Guelph Regals and Wilmot WIld, thanks to our affiliates for providing the much needed player support when required.  It isn’t always an easy task to coordinate but your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

A huge shout out to our many sponsors who have been more than generous in their support of the Braves.  We certainly appreciate your help in keeping the Braves strong for over 50 years.

And to our fans, wow, our numbers were up considerably this year and we thank you.  Activa was rocking thanks to you.

This was our 50th anniversary season and the celebrations to honour this milestone brought back many players from the past.  It was a year of many memories, some that will remain with us forever.

Keep following us on social media, we will keep everyone updated with the happenings with the Braves.

Thank you

Lawrie Hallman

President
