Sign up by Oct. 23 for Sun Valley B/B+ Hockey League
Registration and player fee payment for the Sun Valley B/B+ Hockey League are taking place earlier this year because the league's 2011-12 season of Sunday evening games is scheduled to begin earlier, on Sunday, Nov. 6 at Sun Valley Skating Center.
Sign-up sheets were first made available Friday, Oct. 7 at Sturtevants in Ketchum and Hailey, according to league commissioner Gary Norbom. He said the new "rollback" player fee of $225 per player must be received by Sunday, Oct. 23. Team selection and the league schedule will be made after sign-ups end so the skating can begin by Nov. 6, he added.

Evans remains Chapman soccer scoring leader
With over two-thirds of the 2011 college soccer season in the books, former Wood River High School star Aimee Evans of Hailey remains the scoring leader for the Chapman University Panthers (5-8-1) based in Orange, Ca. Evans (7 goals, 2 assists for 16 points) also leads the Panthers in shots (36) and shots on goal (20).
The junior forward and Chapman art major scored the game-winning goal Sept. 30 in a 1-0 victory over U.C. Santa Cruz that snapped a three-game Chapman losing streak and was the team's first home win. In Chapman's next game, Evans equalized with a goal late in the second half that sparked a 2-1 triumph over Claremont (Ca.). Last fall, Evans led Chapman with 12 goals and tied for the lead with 26 points.
Chapman returns home from a three-game eastern swing with a home game against Whittier College today, Wednesday. The 18-game season ends Oct. 26.
