Support from hockey fans helped fuel the Selkirk College Saints to a fourth straight British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) title this past weekend and now the student athletes are hosting a gathering to celebrate with the community.
The Saints Celebration Rally is set for Wednesday starting at noon on the Castlegar Campus. There will be free pizza, autographs, photo opportunities with the championship trophy and another chance to bask in the glory of a provincial championship.
“Without community support, this hockey program would not exist,” says Selkirk College Athletics & Recreation Coordinator Kim Verigin. “We are inviting all the amazing hockey fans and community supporters to come to The Pit on the Castlegar Campus to share this special accomplishment with our players, coaches, students and Selkirk College staff.”
The Saints captured an unprecedented fourth straight BCIHL crown with a 2-1 victory over Trinity Western University on Saturday night before a packed house of more than 800 fans at the Castlegar & District Community Complex.
The rally takes place in The Pit between noon and 1 p.m. Everyone is invited.
