The Whitby Warriors are pleased to announce that the team has won 2 of the annual awards given out at the end of the season. These awards are picked by the opposing coaches around the league.
Wyatt Craik received the Rookie of the year award for the East division. He led the team in total points during the season with 54 (26G, 28A), as well as the playoffs with 19 (11G, 8A). He also did an outstanding job as a transition player, both pushing the ball up the floor and stopping any fast breaks by the other team. Wyatt was an instant leader, on and off the floor, and was a focal point for the Warriors all season.
The Warriors were also pleased to be awarded with the East Coaching Staff of the year award. The entire coaching staff is pleased with how the season went as it was a big improvement on the year before, and can’t wait to grow as a team next season. Jason Wiswell, Danny LaFontaine, Paul Gilligan and Paul Allman thank all the players for their hardwork and fans for their support.
