A rep hockey team for Peewee girls has now been established for the northwest. Called the Northwest Eagles, the team played in Prince George Jan. 13-14 against Abbotsford, Mackenzie, Prince George, Grand Prairie, and Northeast. The regional eagles didn’t win any games, but coach Richard Kriegl said he felt they played competitively considering it was their first time on the ice together. The team has players from Terrace, Kitimat, Prince Rupert, Smithers, Hazelton, Fraser Lake and Vanderhoof.

Basketball

Nearly a dozen teams from the Nass Valley (including from New Aiyansh, Gitwinksihlkw, Greenville and Kincolith) are gearing up for the All Native Basketball tournament in Prince Rupert Feb. 12-18. Stay tuned for a story.
