Shaw off to provincials

Bailey Shaw, of Greenwood, is one of five Boundary youngsters heading to the BC Hockey Provincial Their 3 Championships.

Greenwood teen Bailey Shaw and the South Okanagan midget hockey team have earned a berth at the B.C. Hockey Provincial Tier 3 Championships March 15-20 in Dawson Creek. The team won both the banner for ­first in their league and for winning the playoff championship last weekend.

Shaw, who plays le wing, scored two goals and two assists in their ­final playoff game.

Five Boundary youth are on the team: as well as Shaw, there are four players from Grand Forks: Josh Hammet, Colby Horne and Brydan Thomas and Chase McKay.

A fundraising dance is set for this Friday, March 6 at the Sonora Centre in Osoyoos.

All coffee sales at Race Trac Gas are being donated to the trip. According to Bailey’s father, Gerry Shaw, the cost of a trip like this gets into ­five ­figures pretty fast so any additional donations are appreciated.
