Another successful hockey season closed off, while the 2011/2012 one was alluded to, during the Cowichan Lake Minor Hockey District Awards Day and Annual General Meeting, Sunday, April 10.

During the awards ceremony, many Peewee players were unavailable to receive their awards, as they were at a tournament in Powell River (it was revealed during the ceremony that they’d managed to place fourth).

Atom League team coach Mark Martin was one of the proudest, as his team placed first in the league, losing only two games all season.

“We played hard and we played well,” he said.

Following the team and association awards, the Annual General Meeting elections were held, with outgoing president Darren Sowden thanking a larger than usual turnout of people interested in holding positions for making the job easier.

The results of the evening are listed below:
