Shattuck-St. Mary’s Wins Inaugural World Sports School Challenge Gold

Shattuck-St. Mary's Wins Inaugural World Sports School Challenge GoldLate in December the Shattuck-St. Mary’s boys Hockey team defeated Finland (seriously, Finland!) 5-3 to win the first World Sports School Challenge (WSSC) gold medal.

The game was a rematch and avenging win with S-SM having lost to Finland earlier in the tournament.

S-SM’s Willie Raskob tallied a hat trick to lead the win.

My thanks to S-SM for sending this along. I had never heard of the World Sports School Challenge so of course I had to do some digging. Hockey Canada put together the WSSC to provide a showcase for their high level prep hockey programs.

“The World Sport School Challenge will give students attending Canadian sport schools the chance to play at a higher level, refine their skills and show the country they can excel internationally…Having Hockey Canada proactively work with sport schools to make this happen adds much to the development of many up-and-coming young players, who may one day end up wearing the maple leaf on their jerseys,” explained Andy Oakes, event chair and president of Okanagan Hockey Academy.
