Congratulations to Bend Rapids player Ryan Walker for being selected by WWU for the 2020-21 season! Oregon is proud of your accomplishment!
From Western Washington University Ice Hockey's Facebook post:
Viks Nation please join us in welcoming our TENTH commitment of the 2020-21 season, Ryan Walker! The 6’ defenseman from Bend, OR has spent the last few years playing for the Bend Rapids where he put up 19 points (10G, 9A) in 15 games played as captain in his final season with the team! Walker is no stranger to Bellingham or to Coach MacDonald as he grew up playing here under the now Viks head coach! When asked what he is looking forward to most about joining Western, Walker replied, “I am looking forward to getting to play 4 more years of hockey for the coach I grew up playing for in a town that I love.” Vikings fans please join us in welcoming Ryan Walker to the University and to the team!
Please join OSHA in congratulating Oregon's own Eve Knox from the Bend Rapids! This year's 2018 America's Showcase - Peggy Fikis Outstanding Goalkeeper Award recipient! Teams voted for players in each category through out the tournament but were not allowed to vote for players on their own team. A great honor and achievement for Eve!
Oregon had 4 players (Hana Bush - Portland, Malone Heibert - Portland, Anna Knox - Bend, Eve Knox - Bend) participate on this year's showcase team that went 1-1-1, just missing the playoff. Team Pacific wrapped up the showcase with a win over Mid-Am (6-5).
