Five army cadets and three sea cadets from Williams Lake raced in the provincial cadet biathlon championships Feb. 2 at Mt. Washington on Vancouver Island.
Biathlon combines endurance-based cross-country skiing and precision rifle shooting to create a challenging sport for competitors.
Williams Lake Cadet Olund Mork from the 3064 Army Cadets took home a bronze medal in the individual junior male category.
Cadets Joshua Tucker, Matthew Nendick, Dana Rook, Emma Davidson, Julia Rook, Kaitlin Lebrun and Abby-Lynn James finished strong and were happy to take home some great memories, said coach Irene Berns.
“We would like to thank the Williams Lake Sportsman’s Association, Bull Mount Cross Country Ski Club, the RCMP Charity Golf Tournament, and the Navy League and Army Cadet League sponsoring committees for their continued support and sponsorship,” she said.
