Midget team second at provincials

Whistler's Midget Rep team placed second in the provincial Tier 3 championships in Victoria this past weekend, losing 5-2 to a team from Port Alberni. Whistler went down 3-1 in the first period, with Grant Iles scoring Whistler's only goal with assists from Thomas Cankovic and Tyler Welsh. Whistler made it 3-2 after scoring early in the second period, this time with Thomas Cankovic burying a pass from Grant Iles.

Other players to rack up points in the six-day tournament include Wyatt Den Duyf, Ben Flynn, Taylor Derynck, Ryan Grills, Fenner Rockliffe, Mac Hart, Mackenzie Graves, Edward Lindsey, Keegan Blunden and David Lepine. Cankovic, Welsh and Iles were the team's top scorers.

Ski jumping returns to Whistler

It's been a while, but this Friday, March 29 and Saturday March 30 mark the return of ski jumping to Whistler after a long absence. The normal hill competition — and Nordic combined jumps — takes place on Friday at 10:30 a.m., followed by the Nordic combined cross-country races at 2:30 p.m.

The long hill competition is on Saturday, starting with a trial round at 9:30 a.m., followed by the two-jump final at 10:30 a.m. Both men and women are competing.

Sunday is the contingency day, but if the forecast is accurate then it won't be needed. For more info, visit www.seatoskynordicfestival.com.
