Selkirk College Saints Recieve Boost in Big Win
It was a trip down memory lane last month at the Castlegar Recreation Complex as a dozen Selkirk College Saints hockey alumni from the 1970s gathered to swap stories and remember the old days.
With a crucial BCIHL match-up between the Saints and the Simon Fraser University Clan acting as the backdrop on February 22, the team put together the second annual Alumni Night to pay tribute to those who helped plant the current team’s roots.
It was Alumni Night at the Castlegar Recreation Complex late last month.
“I’m absolutely delighted to see it come back and be as strong as it is right now because it was a great focal point back in the early 1970s,” said Mal Stelck, the man who helped bring prominence to the hockey program more than 40 years ago.
Alumni, Selkirk College administration and current team staff gathered in a meeting room for a social mixer prior to puck drop. Amid displays of old team photos, newspaper clippings, trophies and assorted memorabilia; those gathered shared laughs about their early hockey days.
The Saints clinched first overall in the BCIHL this past weekend in Castlegar.
