On Wednesday, July 17 at SAIT in Calgary, the 2019 season of the Calgary Premier League wrapped up. The Final Four teams faced off for one last epic night.
The 2018 Champs, the Cold Garden Tropikills, once again advanced to the Premier Cup finals after an impressive season. They faced off against the Trolley 5 Storm who advanced to the Premier Cup finals for the first time after being defeated in the 2018 Semi Finals by the Tropikills.
Both teams played excellent but unfortunately for the Storm women, the Tropikills were unable to be defeated. The Cold Garden Tropikills took down Trolley 5 Storm in 3 sets (15-12, 16-14, 15-13).
In a rematch of the 2018 Premier Cup, the JVC Timberjacks faced off against the GBE Dinos Volleyball for the 2019 Premier Cup!! In the end, the Dinos got their sweet, sweet revenge and took the Premier Cup from the Timberjacks who were looking to defend their title with back to back wins.
In another close game, the Dinos defeated the Timberjacks in 3 sets (15-11, 15-12, 21-19). The Dinos took home the well deserved Cup, after only losing 1 regular season game.
An amazing season from all the teams and athletes!! We can hardly believe the 2019 Calgary Premier League is over. We are excited for what 2020 holds at the Premier League!
A big thank you to all our volunteers, staff and of course, the fans who showed up every week to give their support - we couldn’t do this without your help!!
