Rockets’ blue liner jets to SAIT on scholarship
Cora Sutton of the female midget AAA Thompson Okanagan Rockets has earned a hockey scholarship to SAIT Polytechnic.
The NorKam secondary graduate, a defenceman who captained the Rockets last season, will study civil engineering at the Calgary school starting this fall.
Sutton registered three goals and 17 points in 28 games with the Rockets in the 2011-2012 campaign.
Thompson Okanagan fell 2-1 to the Fraser Valley Phantom in a best-of-three provincial-final series last season.
The Kelowna-based team is holding tryouts for the 2012-2013 season in the Little Apple from Friday, Aug. 10, to Sunday, Aug. 12.
