When the Kimberley Dynamiters took to the ice to celebrate winning the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League championship last month in Kamloops the race for the 2016 title began.The Nelson Leafs hope to get a jump on the upcoming campaign when the Heritage City franchise hosts a Prospects Camp beginning Friday at the NDCC Arena.“The purpose of this weekend is to show your ability to play at the Junior Level, while getting an opportunity to learn more about the Nelson Leafs, meet the coaching staff, tour our facilities and enjoy the City of Nelson,” coach and GM Dave McLellan said on the Leafs’ website.The camp is close to full with only a few spots available for forwards.
“Our team had a great season all around but we grew more consistent the more we played as a team,” May explained when asked about the remarkable seaosn.”Our pitchers did very well this year with Jordan McLeod being very consistent all year.”Benoit Thibault got the start for Nelson before giving the ball up to McLeod.The offence was led by Benoit Thibault and Chase May with Justin Lasichuk and Maida also providing offensive spark for Nelson.Nelson, which dispatched Castlegar in the semi final to reach the championship, finished the season with a 13-4-2 record, edging out Trail Athletics for the regular season title.Thursday’s win was also the first time this season Nelson was able to get the better of the Silver City squad.”We never beat the A’s during the regular season so this was a great win for our team,” said May.”Although we struggled in a few games our hitting was pretty consistent all year,” May added. Nelson combined the strong pitching of Benoit Thibault and Jordan McLeod with a timely offence to stop Trail Athletics 11-5 in the final of the West Kootenay Babe Ruth Baseball Championship Thursday at the newly-refurbished Queen Elizabeth Park.The victory snaps what some baseball historians believe is a 20-year drought for Nelson Baseball.”Someone mentioned about the 20-plus year slump Nelson against Trail, but I have to admit I don’t know the dates or anything but it still feels good to beat Trail because they always have strong teams,” said Nelson coach Roger May.With the Nelson leading 5-4, Justin Lasichuk drove in a run with a double to center field. Jayden Maida then reached back before coming around to axore and increase the lead to 7-4.Nelson then put the ball in the hands of pitcher Jordan McLeod who silenced the Trail bats the rest of the game.
Arcata scored in the seventh inning to edge a close contest at St. Bernard’s in prep baseball Wednesday evening, winning 5-4.After seeing an early 4-0 lead disappear, the Tigers pulled ahead late when Brian Ford drove in the winning run on a suicide squeeze to score teammate Jaden Gorge.“Both teams had some miscues that the other team was able to take advantage of,” Arcata head coach Troy Ghisetti said. “We were able to get the run in the seventh.”The win was the first of the early season …

When it came to big National Signing Day events, Michigan definitely led the way with its “Signing of the Stars” fundraiser. The Wolverines weren’t the only ones to have a good time celebrating the big day, however. Clemson posted three videos from its party, and it looked like a pretty good time in its own right. No Derek Jeter, Lou Holtz, or Migos, but I don’t think the Tigers are complaining.
