Nelson Nordic skiers bring home medals at Teck Kootenay Cup
A little snow didn’t stop teams from Nelson, Rossland and Kimberley from competing in the Teck Kootenay Cup Series race Sunday at the Apex Trails south of the Heritage City.
The host club took home many of the medals, winning a handful en route to the team title.
Leading the medal haul was Berend Platje and Dylan Gyr in Peewee Boys, each placing first in Division one and two. Sabian Ednew was also first in Peewee Girls.
In Bantam boys Oliver Mcdougall-Eisele took first while Sophie Edney was third in Bantam Girls.
Keiran Marchand of Nelson captured the gold in Midget Boys while Jack McKimm was second in Div. two.
In Div one, Ira McKimm was third while Sonje Boyd injured an ankle in Midget girls and did not finish.
All skiers are part of the Nelson Nordic Ski Club Track Attack.
Galen Boulanger and Walker Mourer-Dempster, older members of the Track Attack, topped juvenile boys and junior boys, respectively.
Rounding out the Nelson results:
Doris Hausleitner was first in women’s 30-39; Louise and Kim Poole — George Edney was second to Kim Poole — topped their women’s and men’s 50-59 division; and Travis Hauck was first ahead of teammate Ned Woods in men’s 30-39 division.
The final round of the Teck Kootenay Cup series goes February 16-17 in Kimberley.
