Hockey World mourns tragic bus crash involving Humboldt Broncos team

 

The Humboldt Broncos is an ice hockey team from Humboldt, Saskatchewan. Established in 1970, the Broncos play in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.

Bus crash

In 2018, the Broncos had advanced to the SJHL semi-finals, but were trailing in the series against the Nipawin Hawks by 3–1 heading into Game 5 on April 6. En route to the game, the Broncos’ team bus was “t-boned” by a semi-truck on Highway 35 near Armley; the local RCMP reported 15 fatalities as a result of the accident, and the game was cancelled. The president of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, Bill Chow, has described the incident as the “worst nightmare.”

Season-by-season standings

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) was called the Saskatchewan Amateur Junior Hockey League (SAJHL) until the end of the 1972–73 season.

  • In the 1971–72 season, teams played 1- and 2-point games, with teams playing between 42 and 60 games each. Teams could win a maximum of 8 points against another team during the season, so if they played the other team only 4 times, all games were two-point games, if they played each other 6 times, however, 4 of the games had a value of one point each, the other two games being worth 2 points each. Humboldt, Melville and Prince Albert all ended up with 32–12 records, but Humboldt won more two-point games and as a result ended with 53 points compared to 51 for Melville and Prince Albert.

By Kyle Kuhlman/OCCAC Sports Information

Shepherd Player of the Week Mar 5SPRINGFIELD, Ohio – Believe it or not, Spring sports have begun in the OCCAC and the conference’s first Baseball/Softball Athletes of the Week (Feb. 26-March 4) have been awarded. Lakeland’s Kallista Hribar (position player) and Abby Takacs (pitcher) swept the softball accolades while Colin Shepherd of Sinclair picked up baseball player of the week recognition and Cuyahoga’s Doug Smith is the pitcher of the week.

Shepherd (Sophomore Infielder – Olentangy, OH) hit .500 (8-16) during a 4-1 opening week for the Tartan Pride of Sinclair Community College. He drove in seven runs and posted a pair of extra-base hits (a double and a triple). Once on the base paths, Shepherd swiped two bags and scored a run in four different games. He stepped it up in a series victory over No. 18 McHenry, going 7-for-13 (.538) with three straight multi-hit games and a half dozen RBI.

Sinclair is 6-3 overall this year and currently ranked 15th in NJCAA Division II.  The Pride will host Kellogg this weekend in a three game series at Athletes in Action.

Today is Groundhog Day

The observance of Groundhog Day in the United States first occurred in German communities in Pennsylvania, according to known records.

The earliest mention of Groundhog Day is a February 2, 1840 entry in the diary of James L. Morris of Morgantown, Pennsylvania, in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, according to the book on the subject by Don Yoder. This was a Welsh enclave but the diarist was commenting on his neighbors who were of German stock.

Is a popular tradition celebrated in the United States and Canada on February 2. It derives from the Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if a groundhog (DeitschGrundsauGrunddaxDax) emerging from its burrow on this day sees a shadow due to clear weather, it will retreat to its den and winter will persist for six more weeks, and if he does not, due to cloudiness, spring season will arrive early.
