The Salmon Arm Peewee Rec Silvertips Minor Hockey team received a well-deserved award for their efforts on the ice this season.
Over the weekend, the ‘Tips received a championship banner and trophy for finishing the season first in their division.
Before their Saturday, Feb. 9 game against the Winfield Bruins, the Silvertips assembled on the ice in front of proud parents, friends and hockey fans to receive the banner and trophy. This is the first time in seven years a team from Salmon Arm has claimed the top spot in their division, and the team will soon move on to league playoffs as the regular season comes to a close.
The bantam Silvertips are also on their way to claiming a championship banner of their own, as three separate bantam teams from Salmon Arm are in the top ranks of their division.
