Members of the Toby Creek Nordic Ski club Track Attack Racers attended the 2012 Midget Cross Country Ski Championships in West Kelowna on March 3 and 4. This event brought our young skiers together for a memorable and enjoyable weekend of competition and fun.
The event was hosted by the Telemark Cross Country Ski Club and saw 208 entries from 19 cross-country clubs from B.C. and Washington State, with ages ranging from 9 to 12 years old.
Local skiers included (above, from left to right) Carolyn McCleary, Erin Kubian, Marcia Paget, Mathew Swallow and Krisytn Tamelin, led by Rich McCleary and head coach, Darren Tamelin.
The young skiers battled warm temperatures and had solid performances in all events, which included individual classic technique 2 km events, team relays of both skate and classic technique, as well as skate sprint events throughout the weekend.
Marcia Paget brought home a well fought third place finish in skate ski sprint races.
