Mariners’ football team moves up to AAA

Earl Marriott Secondary has won two straight AA Tier 2 titles

After two straight provincial football championships at the AA Tier 2 level, the Earl Marriott Mariners are moving up.

At BC High School Football executive meetings in late December, divisional re-alignments were announced – a shakeup that included a handful of teams, including EMS, moving to AAA.

The Mariners – who started as a AA Tier 1 team back in 2005 – will play next season in the AAA Pacific division, alongside teams from across the province, including Rutland, Salmon Arm, Argyle (North Vancouver), West Vancouver and Handsworth (North Van).

“Our coaching staff feels that we will be very competitive in this division and we are looking forward to the challenge as we continue to grow at Marriott,” said Michael Mackay-Dunn on the team’s official website.

“Our success starts right now as we train and prepare during the off-season.”

The Mariners wrapped up their most recent season in late November, with a 40-14 championship win over the Howe Sound Tigers.
