561

THUNDER BAY – Cross country skiers from Thunder Bay converged on Sault Ste. Marie this weekend for Ontario Cup #4, the final O-Cup of the season. The two day event included individual start races on both days with Saturday’s races a classical technique event and Sunday a Free technique. Highlights from the weekend’s events include Big Thunder Coach, Adam Kates winning the Senior Men’s category on both days with Big Thunder Skier Greg Kilroy and Lappe’s Werner Schwar rounding out the top three. Sisters Moira and Daphne Haggerty were both second in their respective divisions in Saturday’s Classic technique event. Daphne showed an even stronger result on Sunday’s free technique event, taking the top spot in the Junior Women’s division. Thunder Bay led the field on both days in the Midget Boys division taking the top three spots on both days with Nicholas Ek, Ryan Pendziwol & Antony Gunka, boding well for the Ontario Midget Championships. The Juvenile Girls from Thunder Bay also showed their strength placing four athletes in the top 10 on both days of competition, in what was arguably the most competitive division. Inter-provincial competition continues for Thunder Bay’s younger skiers March 5-6, with the Ontario Midget Championships in Walden. The National competition concludes March 12-19 with the National Championships in Canmore, AB.
