The Admirals U18 T1 team added a third medal to its 2023-2024 season total with a gold medal win at the Chilliwack U18 Rep Tourney held Jan. 4-7, 2024, on the Lower Mainland.

The Admirals faced stiff competition on their road to the gold medal game with an opening 6-0 win over the Abbottsford A1 T1 Hawks, a hard-fought battle over the Edmonton-based Don Wheaton SSAC U18AA (7-3), a 1-2 loss against the U18 A1 Langley Eagles, and a semi-final 5-0 shutout win over Island Division rivals, the Comox Valley Strathcona Bears T1 team. The VMHA U18s battled back from a two-goal deficit midway through the second period in a thrilling come-from-behind 5-3 win over the Abbottsford A1 T1 Hawks to take the gold medal match.

This tournament win follows a gold medal win at the Comox Valley Bears 2023 Thanksgiving Tourney in October and a silver medal win in November at the 2023 Tim Jardine Tournament in South Delta.
