There couldn't be a more deserving winner for the "Sports Star Of The Month" with DiscoverEstevan and Sun102!
JOE LINGELBACH with DANNY EWEN:
Congrats to Joe Lingelbach on being selected as our latest winner!!! Joe was nominated by Jarrett Daoust and we were able to award him with prizes from our terrific sponsors: King's Department Store, Estevan Shoppers' Mall, Moose Mountain Leisure, A&A Jewelry and Estevan Glass.
Joe has been a leader for sports in our community for many, many years. The owner of 'JL's Bike & Skate' in Estevan since 1991, not only does local sports contribute to his livelihood, but it's also his passion.
Joe still plays many sports including hockey, baseball, and golf, and you likely will see him cycling around Estevan in the summertime. But Joe really makes a significant impact with his volunteer work towards sports all year round.
Whether it's spending 2-3 hours every night after work sharpening skates in the winter, dedicating countless hours shaping and maintaining Mets' Stadium at Woodlawn Regional Park in the summer, or signing up to help out when the city hosts significant events like the 2016 Saskatchewan Summer Games...Joe Lingelbach leads by example and is an invaluable asset for the local sports scene in Estevan and area.
So the next time you're in JL's grabbing some new equipment or taking in a Power Dodge Estevan Bruins' home game at Affinity Place, give Joe a big 'Congrats!' for being crowned as the DiscoverEstevan "Sports Star of the Month".
