2019 NSIHL Scholarship Winners

Congratulations to Monika Ghuman for winning the 2019 North Shore Inline Scholarship and Stephen Castagna for winning the Perimeter Drainage/Matthew Hutchinson Memorial Scholarship.


Monika Ghuman is one of the top female goalies the NSIHL has ever seen! She has been involved with the NSIHL from the youngest "Atom" division. Monika has spent countless hours at the rink volunteering her time and always making the effort to do whatever she can to assist the league. In addition to the leadership roles in volunteering her time coaching, she has helped install and remove the Sportcourt floor, organize and help run the annual swap meet, move equipment back and forth between arenas, scorekeeping, music DJ, as well as running weekly goalie clinics to assist in skill development. Outside of the NSIHL, Monika has made it on the Honour Roll with Distinction in grade 11, and is a teacher's assistant in metalwork at her high school, which has given her great opportunity to expand her leadership skills by helping younger students. Monika was also recently selected to the Jr Women's Team Canada roster and will be competing in the World Roller Games in Spain this summer! We wish Monika all the best of luck!


Stephen Castagna has been one of the leading scorers with the NSIHL for the past 12 seasons. He has volunteered his time during player evaluations for the past four years as well as assisting with floor installation for the past 2 seasons. He was also a coach/mentor for new players teaching them the fundamentals of skating. Stephen has volunteered for many associations outside of school and excelled at sports outside of inline hockey as well. Stephen has reffed for the association for 6 seasons and is a well-regarded official. Stephen currently plays ice for the Alberni Valley Bulldogs and also recently was offered a spot on FIRS to represent the NSIHL in Barcelona this summer. He is looking forward to representing the NSIHL at the highest level. We wish Stephen all the best of luck!
