It was a dominating weekend for the Chico Firebirds 18U traveling roller hockey team.

The Firebirds won the 11-team Division A Championship at the AAU Junior Olympics in Huntington Beach and Irvine. Chico lost their 1st game of the tourney to the Mission Bauer Raiders, but then the Firebirds rattled off 5 straight wins to claim the title, including a victory over a squad from Colombia.

For their outstanding efforts, the team received a trophy and each player got their hands on a gold medal.

The tournament victory capped off what's been a very fun and successful season for these young roller hockey players.
