The Prince Rupert Atom Developmental Seawolves wrapped up their 2016 season in Smithers, taking home third-place in the Smithers Developmental Tournament during Feb. 27-28.

The team lost to Prince George in one of the semifinal games, but standouts for the team  that helped them claim bronze included Logan Hughes, Jorian Mack and goaltender Elly Lowe, among other strong teammates, who all put in a group effort to achieve the top-three finish.

“Everybody played well, it was a total team effort. That was our season-ending event, and the icing on the cake was … the hard work for the year coming together and the team playing well,” said coach Jamie Lowe.

Lowe will coach in some capacity in the 2016-2017 season in the Peewee Division and many of the players from this team will be moving up.

It is refreshing to hear about volunteer coaches continuing on with the players they have helped develop.

This bond between player and coach is never forgotten. Working to make it a good experience for the kids is the highest priority for the parents and coaches at this age level.

One of the factors that makes this a possibility are the sponsors. Coach Lowe extended his thanks to Prince Rupert Grain for sponsoring the team and all the parents’ time for a successful season.
