There were 35 girls on the senior team this year, and 20 girls on the junior team. Gareth Jones, Natalie Peck and Angie McWhirter helped out with the junior team and there are some great up and coming players.

The senior team lost only one league game which was a challenge due to a short season necessary because of the weather.

Amy Hawkings came and helped with player development. Amy is a former player who now plays on the University of Calgary Dinos team.

The Spartans defeated Lacombe and advanced to Provincials, but lost the first game which dropped them to the consolation round but the team rallied and went onto win the next two games, 22-0 and 64-5 which made them the consolation side winners.
