Nelson’s Merissa Dawson made the top 40 at the BC U-18 hockey tryouts in Richmond recently and has been invited to the next camp May 13 to 17 in Salmon Arm, where the roster will be trimmed to 25.

Dawson played for the Golden Jackets and picked up one assist in her team’s lone win in three games. Dawson, a Grade 11 student, is heading into her third year with the West Kootenay Wildcats triple-A midget team.

Fellow Kootenaians Kendra Waterstreet of Fruitvale and Tiana Ewasiuk of Cranbrook also had good weekends but didn’t advance.
