The top climbers in the region are going to be scaling the walls at the Overhang climbing gym this weekend. They’re holding a rock climbing competition Saturday, with all different levels and age groups competing.
We’re nearly a month in to the WHL season, and the Cougars have yet to name their captain. After having Sam Ruopp wear the “C” for the last 3 years, the team is waiting for someone to step up and earn the honour.
Being an athlete in Prince George and traveling a lot are two things that unfortunately go hand in hand. In order to play the top competition or get seen by high level coaches, road trips to the lower mainland are often part of the equation.
The Cougars took a flyer on defenceman Dennis Cholowski in the 10th round of the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft. The skilled but undersized blueliner had told WHL teams that he was going the NCAA college route, and wasn’t planning on ever playing in the WHL.
As we told you on the show yesterday, along with Cholowski, another Cougars player who got some good news yesterday was goalie Taylor Gauthier. The 16-year-old got the call for Team Canada at the World U17 Hockey Challenge, which will be played in Fort St. John and Dawson Creek.
