  •   UVic’s 4th year transfer,  Mack Roth,  who was born in Saskatoon when his Dad was Head Coach for the Huskies, on how he got to play for the Vikes, “I took a transfer year (after 2 seasons at UBC-O) — I wanted to play for an elite program,” he explained. “(Vikes coach) Craig Beaucamp was great. He brought me on. I worked my way into the rotation.  I’ve been getting a chance to get a lot minutes this year on a very good team. This is a dream come true. I’ve never won anything before, so this feels great.”  By Darren Zary, in the Star-Phoenix.

    Vikes’ Craig Beaucamp is no stranger to CIS Tournament play.

    Championship for his Vikes, “Getting to Nationals is always the big goal and sometimes teams under estimate the value of winning a conference championship,” added Beaucamp, who wins just his second conference title in his 12-year tenure. “There is still so much pride in winning your conference, as the last time we won was 2006 so, it’s definitely not easy to do. Several of the guys on the team have played through the last two silver medals so it was nice for them to get this win.”  From a post-game report by UVic’s Ali Lee.

  • Saskatchewan Coach, Barry Rawlyk, suggests that UVic might have been better prepared for the Final than his Huskies , “The Vikes were a little better prepared to play in the final than we were,” said Rawlyk. “In hindsight, so much of our preparation was for (semifinal opponent) UBC.  That’s nothing to take away from the Vikings. They played very well tonight. At the end of the day, the game gets closed out or doesn’t get closed out by us.”  From U of S Athletics.
