Sports Briefs: March 8

Sports briefs from around the Prince Rupert area.

Peewees up for Good Deeds Cup

The Peewee Rep Seawolves have entered the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup, a competition that awards the Canadian peewee hockey team that has the best season off the ice.

To compete for the cup, teams must submit a one-minute video showing a good deed the team did. The Seawolves submitted a video — which can be viewed on YouTube — showing the players participating in the Polar Bear Dip and Resolution Run as a way to raise $1,000, which the team then contributed to the oncology unit at the hospital.

The winner will receive a variety of rewards: a feature profiling the team on Sportsnet, a winner’s ceremony in the team’s hometown with Ryan Smyth and Caroline Ouellette, $10,000 for the team, $5,000 for a charity of the team’s choice, a Good Deeds Cup Championship banner to hang in the team’s home arena, and the names of each player on the team will be engraved in the Cup which will be kept at Hockey Canada headquarters in Calgary.


One last ANBT award winner

One of the women’s All-Stars was unknowingly left out of last’s week’s coverage of the All Native Basketball Tournament winners.

Carly Cochrane was also named a women’s division All-Star, along with her sister, Cary-Lynn. Both girls played on the Prince Rupert team that finished fourth at ANBT.

Carly also competed at the Senior Girls AA basketball provincial championships last week with the Rainmakers.


Senior boys head to provincials

The senior boys team at Charles Hays Secondary School will have to prove how their skills match up against the best teams in the province this week at provincials, which start today.

Going in, the team is seeded sixth after a strong season that saw them rise in the rankings. The Rainmakers attempt to win an important first game against Lord Byng today at 1:45 p.m., which would go a long ways toward a strong tournament.
