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.

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.
