Team BC was unable to find the same magic in 2014 as they had in 2013 when they captured the Red River Cup championship. Team BC Blue and Team BC Orange both fell short of earning a medal at the 2014 tournament. Congratulations to North Saskatchewan for capturing the 2014 Red River Cup championship!
