Both Avalanche teams were on the cusp of qualifying for the Provincial Championships but with losses in the last week of play close was not quite close enough. The men were in a 3 way tie for 6th place but with the tie breaker they ended up in 7th just missing Provincials. The women couldn't put the nerves to rest and unfortunate moved from 6th to 7th in the last week of play.
