Young athletes recognized for skill and community service

Awards include Jack Koteles community service award, John Boscha award, and Nonie Miyazaki award

The Clearwater Midget IceHawks was honoured with the Jack Koteles community service award from Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association (OMAHA).

Angus Allchin was also the recipient of the John Boscha award from OMAHA. Each year, all Midget Carded teams in OMAHA are asked to provide the name of the most valuable player on their respective Midget Rep teams.

Then the final winner is voted on by the opposing players. This is only the second time a player from Clearwater has won this award after Jaxon Kjenstad received the honour for the 2018-19 season.

Not pictured, IceHawk Elijah Wicks was also presented the Nonie Miyazaki award for going above and beyond the role of volunteer within the OMAHA district.
