Las Vegas – One of the great coaches of our time – Bliss Littler of the BCHL Wenatchee Wild – is in town with the Great Western Futures Camp at the SoBe Ice Arena on North Rancho Drive. Brendan Harris and Ryan Chiasson skated with coach Bliss with the Wild last season. Very few coaches prepare for big games better than Bliss.
After two weeks and 589 roller games, the NARCh West Coast Nationals came to a close 3 pm Sunday at The Rinks in Huntington Beach. In the final game – Men’s Gold – the Wheelers beat the Beach City Spray Gold 5-4 in OT.
Megan Myers of Las Vegas and the OC Blades won a NARCh gold medal in Women’s Platinium roller. Megan also won the sniper skills competition.
It looks like some Las Vegas skaters will participate in the NARCh East Coast Nationals in July.
Goal scorer Quinn Travis, one of our favorite players, was not in the main camp of the WSHL Las Vegas Storm over at the Las Vegas Ice Center last week. Quinn was one of the first Storm players signed a year ago. Coach Gabe Gauthier said Quinn is trying out for a club in the Philadelphia area.
Hockey coach Rob Pallin of Las Vegas likes to watch high-level boxing. He was in Carson, California over the weekend to watch the Timothy Bradley vs Jessie ‘Pride of Las Vegas’ Vargas world title battle which had such a riveting finish.
