Sports in BRIEF

Ski camp

Apex Mountain Resort is hosting the third annual Canadian Selection camp for the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association Dec. 13 to 16. It will feature aspiring Olympic mogul skiers from across the country. This is the first competition of the season for the 70-plus athletes ranging from age 13 to 23. These athletes will have the opportunity to showcase their talent with the opportunity to represent Canada as early as the 2014 Olympics in Russia. The competition days are Dec. 15 and 16 and it’s open to the public for viewing.

Jets supporting worthy causes

The Summerland peewee house Safari Water Treatment Jets  are learning more than just hockey skills from head coach Darren McWaters this season. Each month the team supports a specific cause. In October, players sported pink hockey tape in support of breast cancer awareness and anti-bullying. For Movember, not only did they wear artistically drawn moustaches, they got the opposing South Okanagan team to do the same for their Nov. 10 game. On Dec. 8, players and their parents collected donations for the Summerland food bank outside Nester’s and IGA. They filled a pickup truck and SUV.

Penticton men's rec hockey

Bar One Argo Bison and the Hitmen battled to a 5-5 draw in Penticton men's rec hockey league action. Kyle Fraser scored twice, while Dan Fraser, Tyler Judd and Matt Fraser rounded out the scoring. Mark Petry scored twice for the Hitmen, while Dave Sandrelli, Brett Van Riper and Anthony Leardo rounded out their offense. Another 5-5 draw involved the Game Time Sports Wolverines against the Cawston Cold Storage Best Damn Wings. Reid Jackson scored twice, while Jamie Britton, Aric Stickney and Ryan MacMurchy scored the other goals. For the Wings it was Lee Mowry with two, Tom Gabriel, Matt Sodamin and Mishak Potash.
