Up a creek without a battle

Senior League Hockey in doubt

Professional hockey players might not be the only ones without a league to skate in this season.

The future of Senior League Hockey is in doubt with the announcement that league commissioner Pete Prekeges has resigned the post.

?The league will fold without someone stepping up and running it,? Prekeges said. ?That?s where we stand.?

The four-team men?s league has traditionally played a 16-week season culminating with the Gund Cup championship in March.

?No one has stepped up,? Prekeges said. ?There does not seem to be a lot of interest. The truth is everyone complains about the times, which is not bad considering the rest of the world plays at 8:30 p.m., 10 p.m. and midnight.?

League games are played at 8:45 p.m. and 10:10 p.m. at the Sun Valley rink on Monday nights.

If someone would like to step up to the plate, Prekeges has all the paperwork needed. For details, call Pete, 720-3171.
