Resurrection's Christina Sullivan and St. David's Emma Heaney chase after the ball during Wednesday's District 8 field hockey game at Woodside Park.
Sooner or later, the Resurrection Phoenix are not going to win the District 8 field hockey championship.
And it could happen as early as this year.
The seven-time champions, who haven't lost a D8 game since falling to St. Mary's in the 2008 final, will have to overcome a challenge from the St. David Celtics this season to make it eight.
The Celtics demonstrated Wednesday they are worthy adversaries, dominating large stretches of their D8 showdown at Woodside Park before settling for a 2-2 tie.
The league's other teams -- Monsignor Doyle and St. Mary's -- are no slouches either, so it should be a fun ride to the finish.
Whatever happens between now and then, it's been an amazing run for the most dominant program in Waterloo Region high school sports.
The Phoenix have won five of the past six OFSAA championships and earned silver against the Sir John A. Macdonald Highlanders in 2013.
No other program can even come close to that kind of success.
None of this is to suggest Resurrection won't win D8 title this year and advance to another OFSAA championship.
It's just not a foregone conclusion.
Can someone please put the finishing touches on the WCSSAA website?
We're almost into October and the new-and-not-improved website is still without standings.
Thanks for listening.
