Surrey, Cloverdale players win ball-hockey gold

B.C. Westcoast Wolverines won a U15 title in St. John's, Nfld. on Aug. 2.

A handful of Surrey ball-hockey players returned home from national ball-hockey championships earlier this month with gold medals around their necks.

South Surrey’s Jaden Kennett and Chayson Dosanjh – both Elgin Park Secondary students – along with Cloverdale’s Evan McCune and Surrey’s Arjun Raman, were all members of the B.C. Westcoast Wolverines, which won a U15 title in St. John’s, Nfld. on Aug. 2.

The quartet of local players – who were named to the provincial squad after making it through six different tryout camps – helped the Wolverines defeat Alberta, 4-2 in the championship game.

B.C. squads fared well in other age divisions, too. The province’s U17 and U19 teams both won bronze medals.
