Congratulations to David Nunn of Buffalo, Ben Symanietz of Buffalo and Devin Sankey of Willmar. These fine young men were awarded the "Rising Star award". This award is given to WSOA officials that go above and beyond. They ask questions whenever possible, attend clinics, and are always looking for ways to get better. They don't just go through the motions; they work hard to be the best they can be. As a reward they attended a SCSU Huskies game and were able to meet the referees for the game. They spend time before the game asking the officials questions and seeing what it takes to be a college hockey referee! An awesome experience for our award winners!! Also thanks Mike Mooney for helping set this event up! Great work guys!!!
