The Terriers Ladies Auxiliary hosted the Annual Terriers Banquet at the Portage Canad Inns this evening.
Terriers Staff, players, billets, sponsors, volunteers and fans were in attendance to enjoy dinner and a night of recognition for this years season.
Cody Buhler the voice of the Terriers mc’d an enjoyable evening which included toasts from Mayor Irvin Ferris and Cam Blight Reeve for the RM of Portage.
During the coaches speech Blake Spiller recounted the 12 years our coaching staff have been together and some of the highs and lows in that time. As we head into playoffs it is always tough defending a championship, but it’s still ours until someone takes it away from us. We’re confident in our chances and look forward to what’s to come.
3 year veteran and captain Chase Brakel was quick to thank the coaching staff, volunteers, billets and corporate sponsors. He will always remember his time playing in Portage and how supportive the community has been. *Chase heads off to Cornell University next season on a Div 1 scholarship.
For the second straight season Brakel was the MVP winner while his linemate Jeremey Leipsic won the Top Scorer with 81 total points.
