Two Summerland players helped win the Western Canadian Female Senior A Championships in Regina.

Courtney and Alana Parker are members of the Kamloops Progressive Air Vibe hockey team which is the only female senior A hockey team in the B.C. Interior.

The Vibe is a member of the South Coast Female Amateur Hockey League run under B.C. Amateur Hockey.

There are five teams in the A division and four in the AA division; therefore the schedule has the A and AA playing each other throughout the season.

The Vibe finished the season with 19 wins, five losses and four ties to win the A league. The team then won the provincials against a Richmond team in two straight games in a best of three game series, the first game in double overtime 3-2 and the second game 5-4.

From the provincials they traveled to Regina to represent B.C. in the Western Canada Championship.

The Vibe’s first game against Saskatchewan ended in a 3-3 tie. The second game against Manitoba was a 4-1 win. The third game against Saskatchewan was a 5-1 win.

The Vibe’s only loss of the round robin play was against Alberta 1-3.

The Vibe made it to the gold medal game and once again faced Alberta.

The team was down two goals half way through the second period and then scored six unanswered goals to win  6-2.

The Vibe had several injuries and only had 12 skaters and two goalies for five games in 46 hours.
