Marine Harvest Upper Island Riptide scholarship recipients

Hard work, dedication, and the willingness to travel has made the Port Hardy players successful.

The Upper Island Marine Harvest Riptide soccer program held their annual season end Gala in Cumberland.

The Gala took place on Feb. 24, and there were four U18 Riptide players who received scholarships that will be graduating from the Riptide soccer program; Jaylon Grenier and Kaleigh Harris from Port Hardy, Olivia Sellentin from Comox, and Cullen Buholzer from Powell River.

These four Upper Island Riptide soccer players were presented with a $500 scholarship towards their post secondary education by past recipient Danielle Robertson.

Play downs start this coming weekend (March 3-4) to determine which island teams will move on to the provincials in July.

Both the girls and boys U18 Riptide teams are the island champions as well as many of the other Riptide divisions.

Hard work, dedication, and the willingness to travel has made the Port Hardy players successful.
