Police fear there may be more victims of a Chilliwack man now charged with sexual assault in addition to earlier charges of possessing child pornography. James Osell, 43, was arrested at his Chilliwack home in April by members of the RCMP’s Internet Child Exploitation Unit. The residence was searched, and Osell was released the next day after he was charged with possession of child pornography, Now, after examination of items seized during the first search, Osell is facing nine charges of sexual assault. He was arrested at an Abbotsford residence on Aug. 22 with assistance from the Abbotsford Police. “These charges are more significant in the sense that we have evidence of what we allege is handson abuse of children by Mr. Osell,” ICE member Cpl. Van Laer stated in a news release. He said Osell is charged with two counts of sexual assault, two counts of sexual exploitation, two counts of sexual interference, one count of possession of child pornography, one count of accessing child pornography and one count of voyeurism. Police are withholding details to protect the identity of the child victims, but believe there may be more victims. “We have already received a call from a person claiming to have been a victim of Osell in the past, and we encourage anyone in that situation to come forward,” Osell said. “If we have adults today, who allege to have been victimized by Osell when they were kids, by illage coming forward they could be a great source of support for the current children affected by this case,” he said.

Thousands head back to classes UFV ‘squeezed,’ while School District 34 sees modest enrolment growth
Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News
A new school year has begun and the University of the Fraser Valley is “really squeezed” according to Eric Davis, provost and vice-president, academic. The post-secondary institution will serve approximately 16,000 students this year, the same as last, with as many as 3,000 students on waiting lists. Davis said UFV is serving about five per cent more students than it is being funded for. “We have also reached a space capacity. We are operating at close to 130 per cent in terms of utilization of space in the Abbotsford campus. So we are really, really squeezed,” he said. While it is a challenge to try and meet the needs of Valley students, Davis said it is better to have this problem, rather than the opposite. The high demand for courses has forced the university to close applications for most programs. Davis said a lack of

growth funding from the province and increased costs to run the university means UFV has to become more entrepreneurial about raising funds. “At some point we either find new sources of revenue or we have to get smaller.” He said finding cost efficiencies can only go so far. Eventually, cutting programs could become a possibility. “Nobody wants to get smaller.” About 20 years ago, 80 per cent of the in-
stitution’s funding came from the provincial government. That amount has shrunk to about 50 per cent. Davis said the Fraser Valley is the fastest growing region in the province, and has a high demand for postsecondary education. More than 70 per cent of Valley students choose UFV. “We are the institution of choice.” In Abbotsford School District 34, close to 19,000 students and 1,200 full-time teach-
ers will heading to classrooms. “It’s that time of the year for anticipation, excitement and busyness,” said Kevin Godden, school superintendent. He said the district has experienced “relatively flat enrolment” for the last five years. Kindergarten numbers will be slightly up, between five and 10 per cent more than the previous year. Official numbers will not be known for up to two weeks.
In September of 2011, there were 18,291 students enrolled. That number grew to 18,358 by April 2012. Godden said the biggest challenge facing the district is not new enrolment, but keeping students interested and engaged, especially in Grade 10 and 11. “There is a direct correlation between attendance and student engagement. And when they’re engaged, they’ll run to school,” he said. Technology plays a key role in capturing students’ interest. “We are on a bold plan to outfit every school with the technology to allow them to, in a dynamic way, access the Internet and get information.” The school year also marks the opening of the newly constructed Abbotsford Senior. The $45-million renovation and replacement project is ready to accept students today, although construction crews will still be working on some finishing touches for several more weeks.

NewsBytes cyclist killed A 72-year-old cyclist was struck and killed by a five-ton truck just after 9 a.m. Friday morning at the corner of Bourquin Crescent and Mill Lake Road. Identity of the older male cyclist had not been released by press time. The bus loop at that location was shut down for several hours as police investigated the accident. The driver of the truck that hit the cyclist remained on scene and cooperated with police.
body identified The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died after falling into the Fraser River while fishing. Sixty-six-year-old Hope resident Herbert Wells was fishing from rocks on the banks of the Fraser River about three kilometres north of Yale on July 28 when he slipped and fell into the river. An extensive search was mounted immediately, but the body was not located. On Aug. 13, 2012, a body was found in the Fraser River at Abbotsford. The body was located in a two-foot wide channel of the river between a large boom and a barge from the Mainland Sand and Gravel Quarry. Further investigation confirmed the body was that of Wells. The Coroners Service is continuing to investigate this death.
mop causes fire Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service was called out to the Pizza Hut on South Fraser Way on Thursday night, shortly after 10 p.m. When crews arrived they found heavy smoke coming from the roof and sides of the building. Quick action by firefighters prevented the blaze from spreading. Reports indicate the cause of the fire was a mop. “In one of the back utilities rooms there was an old mop that was sitting up against the boiler that had heated up and caught on fire causing a little bit of fire damage and a little bit of smoke damage,” said Jeff Adams, assistant fire chief. He said damage was minimal, but charring occurred.

‘It allows for some renewal’
to join the B.C. Conservative party. He became the party’s first MLA, and will run under that banner. Hawes said people should not read too much into highprofile Liberals deciding not to run. He said Falcon has served for 12 years, and his wife is expecting. “I bet he can make double what he can as an MLA working in the private sector,” added Hawes. By the time he leaves the legislature after May’s election, Abbott will have served some 17 years, including a bid for premier in which he and Falcon challenged Clark for the job. “That’s enough for anybody,”
said Hawes. “It’s a lot tougher and a lot more pressure than a lot of people think.” Hamish Telford, a political science professor at the University of the Fraser Valley, said the loss of these veteran politicians from the Liberals is no shock to observers, but he believes the situation should have been managed better by Clark. “What does surprise me is how poorly this has been handled by the premier’s office.” Telford said Clark should have given every MLA a deadline of the end of the summer to let her know whether they planned to run again. She could plan the future of the party accordingly, and hold a press conference to introduce
new ministers. “We should have heard about this by way of a cabinet shuffle,” he said. “The story would be about change, not disintegration.” Ross Hill, the Liberal riding association president for Abbotsford West, said more MLAs left during the 2005 and 2009 elections than those who have said they aren’t running so far. “It’s not abnormal – it’s very normal. It allows for some renewal,” he said. He pointed out there are eight months for the picture to change before the May election. “We’re planning on winning the election, we’re not planning on being second or third.”
‘A ton of excitement’ at new school From A3
Lance McDonald said he expects the 900 students will have a little anxiety, but also a “ton of excitement” when they enter the new school. Teachers could experience the same thing. “We just don’t know all the curve balls that will be thrown our way. There will be all the unknowns that will cause the first week to be exciting and challenging and sort of take it a day or a week at a time because we are still in a construction zone.” Last-minute touch ups, including painting and sidewalk work, along with the new

parking lot and turf field still have to be completed. Parking should be ready by the end of October and the field will likely not be used until the end of the year. A former Abbotsford Senior grad, the principal said the new design is fitting for a school with such a strong history. He said the openness concept – whether it be the rotunda or the amount of glass used that allows people to walk by and see kids in a shop working – create a good learning atmosphere. He maintains it’s better than the traditional “learn in a box” concept.

Banman conceded. He put the hose down, and they started back, following the hose to the entrance. Then he became stuck, wedged into a narrow space under a set of stairs. “Apparently, the guy ahead of me was thinner than me,” he allowed. Many of the firefighters on duty that day were called out to a major barn fire on Wells Line Road, and Chief Don Beer had to don his gear and assist Banman. The mayor said he felt pretty isolated in that dark building. He called it a sobering experience, and a taste of the “stark reality of what these guys go through every day.” He and Gill appeared to enjoy the auto extrication exercises, smashing glass and cutting windshields, using hydraulic tools to bend a car frame, and cutting through a car’s hood. “There’s a lot to learn about this stuff,” he said. Gill who has been on council since 1996, said it was the first time he had done so much physical work during an orientation event. “Even for me, this is pretty heavy work,” he said. Beer said the day was designed to be educational, and had little impact on his budget thanks to Fire Fighter Union Local 2864 helping to host the event. “I wanted councillors to understand what a firefighter goes through,” Beer said. “They did fabulous – they got nice and sweaty.”

Boys assaulted, one bitten, DO YOU in airport washroom R E B M E M E R Police ask suspect’s ‘guardian’ to come forward NEIL CORBETT Black Press
Two young boys were assaulted by a teen in a washroom at the Abbotsford Airport on Wednesday, and police are asking the apparent guardian of the suspect to contact them. At 12:10 p.m., two brothers aged six and nine entered the men’s washroom near the arrivals area inside the airport terminal building. Both boys were standing in front of urinals when a teenage male approached. The suspect grabbed at the genital area of the younger brother, and then quickly bit the stomach area of the older sibling. The boys started yelling, and drew attention. The teenaged suspect appeared to have been accompanied by an older man, who physically escorted him out of the washroom immediately following the incidents. The Abbotsford Police Department’s Major Crime Unit is investigating, and detectives are anxious to identify both the suspect and the older man in his company. A witness to the incident felt it was possible the suspect had special needs, and that the older man was either his guardian or caregiver. “It’s possible the guardian didn’t understand exactly what happened,” said police spokesman Ian MacDonald. The witness saw him and the teen suspect leave in a hurry. MacDonald said it would be timely for

the older man to come forward, and noted detectives are screening through surveillance video from the airport. They may be able to publicly release an image of the apparent guardian. The two victims involved are from a Lower Mainland community other than Abbotsford, but MacDonald did not want to say which one out of respect for their privacy. They were traumatized by the incident. The suspect is described as Caucasian, 13-16 years of age, with a thin build, 5’4” to 5’8,” short brown hair, having prominent front teeth or braces, wearing a red shortsleeved shirt or T-shirt with blue pants. Accompanying him was a Caucasian man, 50 to 60 years of age, with grey hair and a grey beard, wearing a dark coloured shirt with a “CAT” logo on it. MacDonald said investigators compared the assault with a similar incident at Costco in October 2011, when a sevenyear-old boy was assaulted in a stall. A boy who appeared to be about 10 years old crawled under the door, and bit him on the lip. While the circumstances of the crime are similar, MacDonald said the description of the boy in the first assault is much different, and police don’t believe they are dealing with the same suspect. Anyone with information about this investigation, or the identity of the persons involved, should call the Abbotsford Police at 604-859-5225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Local link to Hope heavy rescue
KERRIE-ANN SCHOENIT Black Press
Icy roads, whiteouts and crushed metal are common sights on the Coquihalla Highway every winter. The transportation route features some of the steepest and most treacherous terrain in North America, which thousands of truckers must travel daily. Climbing the eight per cent grade during the winter, truckers often spin out and pile up. During the worst storms, big wrecks can come as often as every 12 hours. When backups shut down the highway, it’s up to Jamie Davis and his heavy rescue crew in Hope to get traffic moving again. “It’s guaranteed to happen,” said Davis, who also started Aggressive Towing in Abbotsford. “During the winter, you sometimes don’t even sleep. The volume of calls that happen within a short span are very hard to deal with because it pushes your resources to the max.” The busiest time
for Jamie Davis Heavy Rescue is between October and February, where there can be up to 35 drivers on the payroll. “No two accidents are ever the same. These guys probably see more carnage and wreckage then all the emergency services put together. It really gives you a respect for life and what you do every day.” Davis owns a fleet of custom-built heavy rescue trucks with some of the most sophisticated equipment on board. This specialized equipment and the drivers that operate it will be showcased in a new original eight-part series called Highway Thru Hell. Produced by Vancouver’s Great Pacific TV, the show follows Davis and his heavy rescue crew as they work to clear the Coquihalla Highway under unpredictable winter conditions. Filming for the series took place between Dec. 1 and March 31, when the route was covered in nine metres (30 feet) of snow. “There’s nothing
made up about anything in this show – it’s all day-to-day, minute-by-minute,” said Davis. Highway Thru Hell premiers Sept. 4 on the Discovery Channel at 10 p.m. Viewers can also catch full episodes online at discoverychannel.ca

Sentences must protect children
Canada’s crime rate is at a 30-year low, but despite this good news story, people still feel the justice system is too lax on criminals. Recent sentencings, like that of shamed senior RCMP officer Monty Robinson, give credence to people’s cries of foul. For obstructing justice in a hit-and-run death, he received a small conditional sentence and a temporary curfew. This is in contrast to the sentencing of the Stanley Cup rioters. Some young men being sentenced for taking part in the riot are receiving seven to nine months jail time for their part. This may seem either harsh or just in the eyes of the public. But in comparison, an Abbotsford man recently convicted of child pornography received only 18 months. A conditional sentence is a common sentence for the crime, even if the perpetrator is not just looking at child porn but distributing it.
Convicted pedophiles usually do see the inside of a jail cell, but sentences range and often aren’t longer than two years. It is particularly troubling that in this study on crime rates, the offence which saw the largest increase was child pornography, which jumped 40 per cent in 2011 from 2010, say police. The judicial system doesn’t appear to take sexual crimes against children as seriously as it does rioters. The provincial government wanted to send a strong message that those who riot will pay for the crime they committed. The message was heard loud and clear by our judges who by B.C. judicial standards, are handing down harsh sentences. If our government can carry that kind of weight and influence with the provincial judicial system in sending a message of deterrence for rioting, can it not send an even stronger message to protect our children from predators? – Black Press
Moon mission a giant leap for technology Mark
Rushton On the
Other Hand Because of its rarity, it’s called a “blue moon,” but it was nothing less than awe-inspiring as the big orb arced over us last week, the skies cloudless at midnight Thursday. Spectacular in its presence, and amazing that man has actually walked on it. And the first, Neil Armstrong, perhaps prophetically was buried last week while Earth’s satellite reached its zenith for the second time in a month, thus the “once in a blue” reference. The day Armstrong made history, July 20, 1969, was one like so many others that stick in memory for those of us alive when monumental events occur. I recall distinctly where I was and what I was doing on that July day 43 years ago, as I also have fixed in mem-
ory my location when John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, when the Challenger Space Shuttle exploded, and when the twin towers of the World Trade Centre came crashing down. And while they all changed the world, Armstrong’s first step onto the moon was incredible, not so much that he did it, but how it was done. Today most of us carry cell phones that have far more power and features than were in the Apollo 11 space capsule, or for that matter probably in the NASA space centre at the time. In those days computers were larger than cars, required special air-conditioned rooms and were so delicate that even a particle of smoke from a cigarette could cause them to crash. Now they fit in your pocket. Because of the relative crudeness of technology in the ’60s, the shot at the moon was little more than exactly that: point a rocket at it and, based on trajectory, hope it arrived – and hope even more that you could get the astronauts back home. With current technology, you can mount on the windshield or dash of your car a GPS system that, aside
from finding the quickest route to your destination, can also direct you to the nearest pizza parlour. Armstrong and his lunar travel partners had to guide them little more than a modified sextant developed to aid explorers trying to discover the
Today, most of us carry cell phones that have far more power and features than were in the Apollo 11 space capsule... world, let alone space. And the grainy black and white television images sent back to Earth of the historic moment (and yes, for the skeptics among us there still is a debate over whether they were real or staged before the actual flight) took a long time to get to the Kennedy Space Centre. Now a video of the grandkid running about the home lawn can be beamed instantly to me in the backcountry via
my iPhone – though using such devices is generally frowned upon when one is supposedly there to enjoy the ‘get away from it all’ isolation and serenity. So what is left to discover, to microize and where do we go from here? The moon, thanks to Armstrong and a few others who followed him, is ‘been there, done that’ old news. Mars might be next, but truly what is the point of travelling to inhospitable places? And anywhere else is simply too far away given human life spans. Then again, if anyone ever determines how to travel through time, or dramatically slow the human aging process, distant space discovery may yet resume. After all, one of the alleged driving forces behind the Apollo 11-like exploration of this world was Ponce de Leon’s search for the fountain of youth. Come up with the technology to create that and new worlds will be found – if only to give us room to house a population that, with death virtually eliminated, would surely overwhelm the Earth.

Medical care among the best On Aug. 3, I had a heart attack. We were staying in Abbotsford with our grandchildren while their parents were away. In the morning I went golfing in Chilliwack, where I live, and experienced chest pains. I thought it was only indigestion, so I finished the 18 holes. Upon arrival in Abbotsford, my wife took me to the emergency ward, where nurses quickly realized I was having a heart attack. They readied me for transport to the Royal Columbian Hospital, where doctors and nurses went into action. Special thanks to nurse Lexie McLellan for her TLC, and to Dr. Chan, who quickly unblocked the blood vein that caused the
problem. During my life I have worked in many countries in Europe and the Middle East, and have some knowledge of their health care systems. I was impressed with the speed and efficiency of the medical staff in both Abbotsford and Royal Columbian Hospitals. These doctors and nurses are real professionals, and we should all be thankful we have such people when emergencies arise, because, in my opinion, they rank right up there with the best in the world. These kudos are genuine, because I am not connected with health care, and I did not/ will not vote Liberal. Terry Biggar
Air show enjoyed by thousands A letter published in the Abbotsford News of Aug. 16 was written by a person who wants the Abbotsford Air Show discontinued. This would deprive tens of thousands of spectators from the thrills and excitement of performances by those gallant young men in their flying machines, because this person is frustrated by the noise. Consider this, frustrated person – many airfields are a hundred years old and were located many miles from human habitation. These airfields were used by early inventors and experimenters, and that led to today’s modern aircraft. Gradually people built houses closer and closer to these airfields in the full knowledge there would be aircraft noise, but they complained anyway. Three days of an air
show in a year is entertainment for the public, not a frustration.
There is, of course, a simple solution for you, frustrated person – take a short
vacation away from Abbotsford’s air show. Eric D. Muir

Black has fine idea
Media mogul David Black has my full support for his proposal to build a $13-billion oil refinery near Kitimat to process heavy oil from the Enbridge pipeline. I’ve had the same idea myself. Why should we let the Asian countries buy our Canadian crude oil and refine it for their markets, when we could add value by refining it here in B.C. and ship them the finished product? This would create local jobs for our own citizens and address the environmental concerns around oil tankers travelling in B.C.’s coastal waters. As long as Enbridge meets the conditions and standards set out by the premier, moving
heavy oil from Alberta through a pipeline would be better than shipping it by rail or truck. B.C. should be working with Alberta on exactly the kind of joint inter-provincial venture Black is proposing – a venture that would bring value-added tertiary oil refining to B.C. along with the heavy oil pipeline. Shipping gasoline, jet fuel and other refined oil products by tanker is just as practical as shipping crude oil, and safer from an environmental standpoint. Let’s not waste this opportunity and the revenue and jobs it could bring to our province. Roop Virk

Farm bench returns maharaja Bookworm project could be next on the list
Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News
Eight months and $5,000 worth of work has restored one of the Downtown Abbotsford art benches to its original form. After an accidental coat of red paint was sprayed over it, the antique farm rake piece created by artist Norm Williams is back. On Thursday morning it was remounted to its cement pad on Essendene Avenue. “I’ve got to say that the whole downtown business association has been great,” said Williams, who was on hand for the unveiling. He said the association “bent over backwards” to make it right. While Williams did not perform the restoration himself – Abbotsford’s Big Rig truck repair and restoration took on the challenge – he was consulted throughout

the process. “It looks pretty good. It’s pretty close,” said Williams. He said it took months to get all the details correct. Originally created in 2001 and sponsored by the Abbotsford News, the art bench was green, with colour added to create the illusion of rust. In December, when workers were painting railings and garbage cans in a bright red colour to spruce up downtown, the bench was acciden-

Eventually, it was learned the artwork had been thrown out. The property manager of the mall where the piece was located saw that the wood was rotting and had it hauled off to the garbage dump. He had no idea that it was part of a series or art benches.

“I think now we have to get the bookworm back. I really do. It’s one of those historic pieces that should be here,” said Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman, who also attended the unveiling. Tina Stewart, executive director of the Downtown Abbotsford Business Association (ADBA), agreed, adding that the latest restoration did not cost taxpayers anything. She said the individual who accidentally painted over the work contributed a “significant” amount to the restoration and the ADBA paid the rest. She also said more art benches could be coming. “We are currently looking into a couple of new pieces. One that might symbolize the Berrybeat Festival, which is coming to its 32nd season, and one possibly for the historic downtown car show.”

MCC Festival & Silent Auction F r i d a y & S a t u rd a y, S e p t e m b e r 7 t h & 8 t h a t T R A D E X
Taylor Johnson – Contributor
The Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) will be holding its 43rd annual weekend relief event at the Abbotsford Tradex on Sept. 7 and 8. The MCC is striving again this year to meet its target of $700,000, after coming up slightly short the past two years. The weekend will kick off Friday with a silent auction from 5-8:30 p.m., as well as a children’s auction from 6:30-7:30. Events end at 9 p.m. and begin Saturday at 8 a.m. with a pancake breakfast. Saturday’s live auction will begin at 9:30 a.m., with the ceremonial auctioning of a loaf of bread. This item sold at the lofty price of $173,770 last year. Traditional hand-
made quilts will also be sold at the auction. Unlike last year’s efforts to assist in Africa, funds raised this year will not go to a specific, single cause. Instead, the money will be directed to where it’s needed most. “While you are enjoying the good food, meeting friends, and finding treasures to buy, you will be helping those in need around the world,” said Dora Hoeppner, relief sales coordinator. The MCC will also hold its fourth annual Pedalling for Hope Cyclathon on the weekend. Cyclists will depart from Tradex and complete either a 20-kilometre or 40-kilometre route. Coordinator Jon Nofzinger expects a larger turnout this
year, with upwards of 60 riders participating in the event, with a fundraising total of about $75,000. Money generated in support of the cyclists
will aid the MCC’s efforts in West Africa’s Sahel food crisis. The MCC’s weekend relief event is not only popular for its auctions, but for its
entertainment and food as well. Traditional Mennonite dishes such as vereniki and przelky can be enjoyed at the various food stands, while
music performances take place in the entertainment tent. The MCC relief event will come to a close Saturday at 2 p.m.

High hopes for new soccer season Cascades aim for Canada West playoffs
As the University of the Fraser Valley women’s soccer team plots a return to the Canada West playoffs, the goal is, well, more goals. In 2010, the Cascades staged a memorable breakthrough, winning the Canada West title and a bronze medal at CIS nationals. During the regular season, they racked up 34 goals, second-most in the conference. But in 2011, the UFV women saw their goal-scoring output plummet to just 13 in 14 regular-season games, and they missed the playoffs altogether with a 3-8-3 record. “Pretty much everything that could go wrong, went
wrong,” Cascades head coach Rob Giesbrecht said. “We lost games where we had 20 corners to their one. It was just crazy, but that’s soccer. You have to be prepared for it, and you have to be prepared to face adversity.” As they embark on a new Canada West campaign this week, the Cascades’ ability to deal with adversity is already being tested. Sophomore midfielder Mackenzie Shopland, perhaps UFV’s best all-around player, went down with a suspected ACL tear during an exhibition game. Between Shopland’s absence, however long it may be, and the graduation of last year’s leading scorer Megan Webster (five goals in 2011),
much of the scoring load will fall to veteran strikers Carly Neeson and Danika Snook, along with midfielder and team captain Chelsea Steffen. But it’s the performance of the youngsters which will determine the Cascades’ level of success. Two-thirds of the roster is comprised of freshmen and sophomores, and Giesbrecht started six rookies during a recent scrimmage against SFU. Defenders Sam Ricker and Tristan Corneil, midfielder Kara Delwo, and striker Danica Kump will be key contributors. “We’re very young, but we’ve improved the overall athleticism and depth,” Giesbrecht noted.

No quit in two-sport NCAA athlete Chutskoff Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News
DAN KINVIG Abbotsford News
Alexandra Chutskoff’s tireless work ethic in the face of adversity earned her the most improved player award with the NCAA Div. III Finlandia Lions last season.
Being a two-sport athlete at the NCAA Division III level while juggling a demanding class schedule is sure to pose a challenge for Alexandra Chutskoff this fall. The 18-year-old Abbotsford native, fortunately, knows a little something about taking on challenges. Last year, as a freshman at Finlandia University in Hancock, Mich., Chutskoff weathered a winless season with the Lions women’s hockey team. It’s easy enough for an athlete to keep a positive attitude when things are going well, but enduring an 0-20-2 campaign posed a mental test

the likes of which she’d never experienced. It’s a good thing, then, that Chutskoff buys into the notion that suffering produces character. “Every day I had to look at it like, ‘Look where I am – I’m playing college hockey,’” she explained. “It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years, something I’ve strived to do, and now I’m living it. “In the moment, it’s always tough to be like, ‘Wow, we keep losing.’ But it’s something you have to work at, and it’s one season. There’s three more left in my career to play. ” Chutskoff’s never-quit attitude in the face of adversity didn’t go unnoticed. At season’s end, the left winger was voted Finlandia’s most
improved player – an award which was particularly special to her because it was voted on by her teammates. “I put 100 per cent into everything I do – every workout, every practice, every game,” she said. “Every shift you play is a chance to get better.” After returning to the Finlandia campus this fall, Chutskoff was kicking around a soccer ball with a couple friends when the Lions women’s soccer coach happened to wander by. He invited her to try out for the team, and she cracked the roster. “It’s a big commitment, but I’m good at staying on top of my schoolwork,” she said. “I’m excited. It’ll help me get in shape for hockey season.”

A pair of Abbotsford lacrosse players have earned scholar athlete awards from the Burnaby Mountain Selects club. Rhys Burnell and Jesse Worley, both members of the BMS boys elite squad and students at Yale Secondary, were honoured. The award recognizes players who participated in the BMS elite touring program, while achieving an academic average of 80 per cent or higher for the 2011-12 school year.
university stars – Jordan Baker (Alberta Golden Bears), Dominyc Coward (Lethbridge Pronghorns) and Jarred OgungbemiJackson (Calgary Dinos) – to win a first-round tournament in Edmonton in June. That victory advanced them to a tourney in New
York City in mid-August. They made the semifinals, which was enough to qualify them for to the championship in Miami. The finals will feature 12 teams from around the world. Friesen’s squad went 3-1 in the group stage, with wins over Orlando (21-11), NY
Bronx (14-10) and Dallas (21-8), and a loss to San Juan, Puerto Rico (16-12). In the knockout round, the Canadians punched their ticket to Miami with a 21-12 win over Philadelphia. They fell to eventual tourney champ Denver in the semis (20-18).

“You never want to say you’re in a rebuilding phase, because you don’t want to take the focus off accomplishing this year. On the day, we’re capable of beating anybody, I honestly believe that.” In goal, fifth-year veteran Chantelle Biagioni will carry the load, backed up by rookie Kayla Klim, a product of the Whitecaps Girls Elite program. Biagioni has been exceptional in the preseason, allowing just one goal. n The burning question for the UFV men’s team is, is this the year they finally break through and earn a playoff berth? Heading into their seventh CIS season, the Cascades men have yet to taste Canada West postseason play. In 2011, they finished tied for last in the conference at 1-11-2. But head coach Alan Errington is heartened by the fact that the road to the playoffs is easier this season thanks to a format change. The Canada West

men’s soccer league has been divided into two divisions, Pacific and Prairie, and three teams from each will qualify for the postseason. Previously, there were only four total playoff berths available. “I think this year, it’s the strongest we’ve been,” noted Errington, whose Cascades will play in the Pacific Division with UBC, UVic, Trinity Western and Canada West newcomer UNBC. The Cascades bring back a core of veterans including strikers Craig Robinson and Sasa Plavsic, right back Colton
O’Neill and keeper Mark Village. Connor O’Neill, Colton’s twin brother, returns after missing last season with a concussion. Among the key newcomers are midfielder Justin Sekhon, winger Cole Almond, striker Dalibor Plavsic (Sasa’s brother) and centre back Cam MacKinnon. MacKinnon figures to make an instant impact – the Abbotsford product played for the national U17 team and then at SFU before returning home to UFV. Errington has also added Colin Miller to the staff as an assistant coach. The

former Abbotsford Soccer Association head coach has held assistant coaching positions with Derby County of the English Premier League and with the MLS’s Vancouver Whitecaps. “He’s probably the best signing of the whole lot,” Errington said with a chuckle. n The UFV soccer teams are calling Chilliwack home this year, moving their home games from Abbotsford’s Bateman Park to Exhibition Field. Exhibition Field is a 2,000-seat stadium with lights, whereas the Bateman Park pitch had limited seating and was unlit. The move allows UFV to market evening games to youth teams who are often playing games of their own on weekend afternoons.
