Lakers Atom League team get gold in Comox

Lake Cowichan’s Lakers Atom League hockey team finished the hockey season on top.

As the last outing for the season, the team headed out to Comox, for the weekend of March 20, where they won all four games, earning gold during the final day of the tournament.

“It was a really good group of kids, and (coach) Mark (Martin) made up some good lines,” team manager Tracey Janzen said, after the tournament. “It ended the year with a great big bang.”

The team’s players were also quite excited to end their season on top.

On top of their gold at Comox, the local Atoms have been declared the number one team in their league, with only a few losses reported all season.

The previous weekend, the Atoms also earned silver at a league tournament.

“It was just a really good year,” Janzen said. “I’m glad it ended that way.”

Lake Cowichan and District Minor Hockey plans on wrapping the hockey season up more formally, Sunday, April 10, with their Hockey Awards and AGM at Centennial Hall.

The event will begin at noon.

During the awards and AGM, players can begin to register for the 2011/2012 hockey season.

The awards ceremony will take place first, followed thereafter by the AGM.

During the elections, Lake Cowichan and District Minor Hockey president Darren Sowden said that he will not run again for the position.

With his son – Darren’s main reason for becoming involved – moving on to other things, Darren, too, will be moving on, leaving the president position open.
