The Elk Valley Wild Midgets had their playoffs Feb 14 to 16 at the Fernie Arena where they took first place and won the league banner for the second year in a row.

The Midgets had a great season with 29 wins, five ties and three losses. They participated in five tournaments: Nelson, B.C., Oct. 25 to 27 (first place), Spokane, WA, Nov. 29 to Dec. 1 (second place); Coaldale AB, Jan. 24 to 26 (second place); Magrath, AB, Feb. 7 to 9 (first place); and first place in their own tournament this past weekend, Feb 21 to 23 in Sparwood. The team and parents would like to thank the coaches Tom Hopkins, Ron Wray, Vaughn Willet and our team Manager Bonnie Willet for a great season!
