Congratulations to 8U Gold - Gallagher who won 1st place at last weekend’s Wenatchee Apple Cup! Sno-King's 8U Team Purple - Kirkpatrick came in 3rd and 8U Team Light Blue - Patterson came in 5th. There were a total of 12 teams who participated. It was a great showing by our 8U Teams. Congratulations!
We are excited to announce that we are launching the SKAHA Weekly Goals Challenge!
We will rotate challenges weekly, players/parents we ask that you post or tweet what you have done by Sunday evening
We challenge you this week to do 150 pushups over the course of the week - do all 150 at once or break it up!
The 16U A1 team did not immediately leave the ice surface following their game vs. the Valley Thunder Wednesday night, something they are instructed to do. They would not leave until Sno-King Kirkland's longtime and valued Zamboni Driver, Will Hoppen, came onto the ice to see why the team was still milling around after both the visiting team and referees left.
The team remained in uniform to say "thank you" and pay tribute to Will for his service at Sno-King. You see, it is Will Hoppen's last night of work at Sno-King. Will will be leaving Sno-King to pursue a career in Aerospace, something that had 16U A1 Head Coach, Mike Butters, beaming. "Will has been a fixture here at Sno-King since I started coaching here. He was a true pro at everything he did and really made the experience for the coaching staff and players a positive one every time we came to rink. The gesture by the team was the least we could do to both let him know how much he is appreciated and to wish him luck in his new endeavor."
"He (Will) was always good to us. We'll miss him," said team captain, Chase Ojala.
Thank you Will!
