The Revelstoke Boxing Club was named the best in B.C. for 2012 at a competition in Mission on the weekend.

The Revelstoke Boxing Club was named the Club of the Year for 2012 by Boxing BC at a competition in Mission on the weekend.

“It was a great surprise that we won the club of the year award,” said coach Sam Lerose. “I wasn’t expecting that after how many years.”

The club had four boxers compete in Mission. Connor Makarewicz won his bout in the youth 165-pound division by unanimous division. The other three boxers didn’t fair as well, said Lerose.

The Revelstoke Boxing Club currently has about 50 members, including a competitive team of about 12 people and a women’s class. It has been around for 11 years now, said Lerose.

The club’s next competition will be in Quesnel, B.C., next weekend.
