The WHL grad-of-the-month award goes to Banjo-Mutt Kyle Bortis. Bison goaltender Jesse Deckert won the award in October.

The Selkirk College Saints have turned things around. The perennial doormats have won all 12 games in the first half of the season to take a commanding lead. They had only 13 wins in the last 5 years (last year's 5 was a previous high). The SFU Clan are the only other side above .500. The Clan are promoting the Great Northwest Classic. I guess it is "classic" if the visiting teams from Oklahoma State and Arizona State were coming here to play football or basketball. But instead they are bringing their ACHA hockey squads in to play SFU and UBC. This is poor competition for UBC, but they will be the only CW team to face an opponent this holiday season.

The ACAC has really subdivided into a first tier (with NAIT, Augustana, and SAIT), a second tier (with Portage, Keyano, Concordia, and MacEwan), and the Briercrest way behind the rest. The 0-16 Clippers have been outscored 116-21. Portage beat Williston State College (NJCAA) 6-3 and 5-3 over the weekend. Augustana will face both Williston and Rosetown (Senior AAA) on Dec 29-30. NAIT will face the Evil Monkeys on Jan 4-5.

Holley good stuff here!
I had no idea there were that many teams playing in the BC College league. Seems all of these teams are well established. Do you know if they will be applying for CIS status? Alot of these schools have membership already in the CIS in other sports so I see them possibly moving over? What would prevent them ? I mean they are already members are they not in other sports?
I have another question?
How come the Canada West AD's allowed the U of A boys to change the schedule and play in the November bye week.....thus having an extra week to get ready for the second half??? What a friggin joke! we have about 4 or 5 days of practice then have to jump on the bus to sask and they get an extra week, have a little tussle with NAIT Ook Picks ( i love that name) then start the second half???? One set of rules for them Roberta and one set for the rest of us I guess? Or just damn good planning?
