The third school to place in the top 10 was also from the Newton area, as the Sullivan Heights Stars topped Eric Hamber 3-2 Saturday to place ninth. The Stars were 1-1-1 in pool play to place third.

The fourth Surrey school at the provincial championship were the Queen Elizabeth Royals, who placed 14th. The Royals lost all three games in pool play before defeating Mt. Baker of Cranbrook 3-0 in a playoff game Friday.
