Elli Terwiel is out with an injury and missed Sunday's World Cup slalom event in Bormio, Italy.

Terwiel, from Sun Peaks, last raced on Dec. 29, when she didn't qualify for the second run in Lienz, Austria. She needs just one World Cup top-12 finish to qualify for the Sochi Olympics.

Canadian Marie-Michele Gagnon finished fifth in Bormio, while Erin Mielzynski was 17th.

The next women's slalom event is scheduled for Jan. 14, in Flachau, Austria.


The TRU WolfPack men's volleyball team finished its trip to Honolulu with a five-set (18-25, 26-24, 25-17, 20-25, 25-23) loss to the U of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors on Saturday.

TRU had beaten the Warriors in four sets on Thursday. The WolfPack will return to Canada West action on Friday against the Brandon Bobcats at the Tournament Capital Centre.

Brad Gunter had 21 kills, while Casey Knight had 16 kills. Colin Carson had 31 set assists, and Graham Stoliker added 19.

The United States completed an undefeated run with a 4-0 victory in the championship final on Saturday. Pacific, which featured Kamloops' Nick Chyzowski and Kevin Davis, was outshot 52-12 in the final, with goaltender Zach Sawchenko going the distance.

The tournament, for players born in 1997 or later, featured 10 teams, including five Canadian regional teams - Pacific (B.C. and Alberta), West (Saskatchewan and Manitoba), Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic. It also featured the U.S., Sweden, Russia, Czech Republic and Germany.

The format will change next year, with the regional teams to be replaced by three Canadian national teams.

Chyzowski, a forward, now will return to the Kamloops Blazers, while Davis, a defenceman, is set to return to the Everett Silvertips. The Silvertips are home to the Portland Winterhawks on Wednesday, while the Blazers will head to Kennewick, Wash., to play the Tri-City Americans on Tuesday.
