Three local skiers win technique awards at midget provincials

West kelowna skiers win awards.

Seventeen members of the Telemark Junior Development program took part in the B.C. Midget Championships over the March 5-6 weekend.

The championships were held at the Whistler Olympic Park in the Callaghan Valley, the same trails that were used for the Vancouver Olympic Nordic events.

The Midget Championships attracted 178 of the top BC boy and girl skiers in the 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001 age groups.

Over the weekend the Telemark skiers captured 15 individual and relay medals as well as a 3rd overall in the club aggregate.

Scott McKinnon, Grayson McKinnon and Ian Williams were also awarded 3 of the 10 technique awards.
