We’re here, we’ve enjoyed every step of the way. Team Canada East has never won this thing, and we’re here to make history,” McGuigan asserted.

As Canada East prepares to face off against Canada West, the stage is set for an unforgettable gold medal game that promises excitement, skill, and the pursuit of a historic victory.
