Medal haul at Sun Peaks for Kelowna skiers

Isaac Athans, Luke McMillan, Devin Blaser, Hallie Jenkins and Jaxon Slaney find podium at BC Teck series

Five Kelowna U14 skiers loaded up on some hardware last weekend at the BC Teck series races at Sun Peaks near Kamloops.

In the boys’ division, Saturday’s GS and slalom races produced two identical podium finishes, with Isaac Athans winning two gold medals, Luke McMillan claiming a pair of silver medals, and Devin Blaser capturing a pair of bronze medals.

Blaser wasn’t finished there, and on Sunday was on the podium again with a pair of first-place finishes.

He also won silver and bronze medals in the overall competition, sharing the podium with older races in the U16 category.

Due to his effort, Blaser has a earned spot on the Zone 2 team for the upcoming  B.C. Winter Games in Penticton next month.

Over on the girls’s side, Hallie Jenkins set the pace for Big White skiers with two gold medals and silver.

Teammate Jaxon Slaney won one gold and one silver medal over the weekend.
