The Junior B hockey team finished its season earlier this month with a seventh game loss in the  division semi finals.

“It was a really good year and we’re moving in the right direction,” said Gregg Wilson, co-owner and general manager of the team.

Olli Dickson was named fan favourite.

Josh DaCosta received the award as top defence player. He also received the scholastic achievement award. The most valuable player award went to Brett Huber.

Rylan Sideroff was named the most sportsmanlike player.

Rookie of the year honours went to Kienan Scott, who was also named top scorer for the team.

The most valuable player in the playoffs was Daylan Robertson. Nesters Market, Murray GM and Summerland IGA received recognition as corporate sponsors.

Suzy Pond, Kim Chadwick and Lisa West were honoured for their volunteer work with the team. Debbie Harrison was recognized as an outstanding fan.

In early April, a hockey camp will be held in Summerland. Between 70 and 120 players are expected to participate.

The Summerland Steam has been the community’s Junior B hockey team since 2011.
