Both the girls and the boys hockey teams won BAA titles and will advance to the CWOSSA championships.

The girls hockey team dominated West Hill of Owen Sound 6-1 in a rematch of last year's final. Marissa Jolley and Hannah Davidson each scored twice for Kincardine, with Amanda Lawrence and Cathleen Roppell each scoring once.

The boys game was another rematch of last year's final between KDSS and Sacred Heart. This year, however, KDSS grabbed a 4-2 win to knock off the two-time defending champs from Walkerton. Jared Colling scored a pair for the Knights, while Alex Legrand and Matt Baker each scored once.
