Last weekend on the ice

Another busy weekend at the Sportsplex

By K.A.Pendergast

The North Thompson Sportsplex saw the beginnings of another busy weekend on Nov. 8. Figure Skating lessons kicked things off followed by family skating sponsored this weekend by Clearwater Towing.

To finish off the evening was Over 50 Hockey and Adult drop-in Hockey.

Saturday saw a couple of practices with the Novice and Pre-Novice age groups. Then following that some spectacular game action beginning with Clearwater atom Icehawks against Chase and then the Icehawks bantams against Merritt, followed by another atoms game with the same team.

Finishing off the evening was the Clearwater Icehawks midget team against Castlegar.

The featured player this week is Owen Christensen who is #2 on the Clearwater atoms Icehawks team. Christensen is currently playing his sixth year of hockey. He said, “I love skating, scoring goals and going to different towns.”

His other favourite NHL hockey team is Tampa Bay.

Sunday began with another midget game followed by a peewee game against the Merritt girls team.

Roger Mayer, arena manager for the North Thompson Sportsplex, quoted Ken Hitchcock by saying, “Do you measure a successful team by wins and losses or by lifetime friendships, good memories, camaraderie, team spirit, discipline, trust and pride? Most parents will measure by the first, most players by the second.”
