U13 AAA EAGLES WIN THE JACKSON WEIS MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT!
The Burlington Eagles would like to congratulate our Under 13 AAA Eagles for winning the 2023-24 Jackson Weis Memorial Tournament in Sylvania, Ohio this past weekend!

Jackson tragically lost his life at the age of 10, and the tournament helps raise money for the Jackson Weis Youth Athletic Achievement Fund that was started by Jackson’s family to help kids and families who otherwise wouldn’t get a chance to play hockey.

The Eagles finished third of the six participating teams in the round robin to advance to the semi-finals with a tie against the Cleveland Barons 2-2, defeating the Columbus Capitals 7-0, and losing to the Sylvania North Stars 4-3.

A rematch against Sylvania in the semi-final ended in a 3-2 win for the Eagles to advance to the finals against the Carshield AAA Hockey Club, whom they defeated 2-1 in the finals to win the tournament!

Everyone at the Eagles would like to congratulate the players, coaching staff, and parents of the U13 AAA for a terrific weekend in Ohio, and for donating a tremendous amount towards the Jackson Weis YAAF. Thank you for representing the Eagles well, and good luck in the upcoming season!
