Members of the Zone 2 (Thompson-Okanagan) team pose for a photograph after winning third place at the BC Summer Games in Nanaimo last week.

The team is made up of eight Clearwater players plus two from Merritt and Matthew Lee from Barriere.

Pictured are (back, l-r) chief coach Kevin Vandamme, coach Clint McGill, Josh Traub, William Ellis, David Coulter, Curtis Pecor, Dalton Jury, coach Orlynn Braaten, manager Marie Dee, (middle, l-r) Connor Dee, Mathew Lee, Julien Dewey, Adam Borrow, Nathan Weninger, and (front) Karter Romeo.

The team finished fourth in the round robin with some really close games. First game in playoffs, Zone 2 battled Zone 4 (Fraser River-Delta), the top team, but lost 3-0. The team then played Zone 8 (Cariboo-Northeast) for bronze. The game was close with a final score of 5-6 for Zone 2.

Much the same team recently won the U16 provincials in Clearwater.
