So far, they have had three days of racing and here are the results of the Telemark athletes:

Monday: Mass Start

Jennah: Senior Girls – GOLD

Tekarra: Junior girls – GOLD

Devon S: Junior Girls – 6th

Devon G: Youth men – 4th

Hudson: Junior Boys – 8th

Hezekiah: Junior Boys – 6th

 Tuesday: Pursuit

Jennah: Senior girls – GOLD

Tekarra: Junior girls – GOLD

Devon S: Junior Girls – 5th

Devon G: Youth men – BRONZE

Hudson: Junior Boys – 13th

Hezekiah: Junior Boys – 4th

With the above performances, Jennah has won the JP Leguellec Trophy for top Senior Girl and Tekarra has won the Nikkie Keddie Trophy for top Junior Girl.

 Thursday: Relay

Westbank Girls unit team consisting of: Jennah, Devon S. and Tekarra: GOLD

Westbank Boys Unit Team consisting of: Devon, Hezekiah and Hudson: SILVER

 Other notable performances from Team BC athletes not from Telemark:

Emile Vogel-Nakamura: Youth men mass start: tied for GOLD (apparently an amazing photo finish-video on the cadet website)

Emile Vogel-Nakamura: Youth men pursuit: SILVER

Louisa Tsang: Youth women mass start: GOLD

Louisa Tsang: Youth women pursuit: GOLD

With these performances, Louisa has won the Myrium Bedard trophy for top Youth Woman

BC Composite Girls relay team (consisting of Louisa Tsang, Kimberly Buller and Carlee Costain): BRONZE

BC Composite Boys relay team (consisting of Emile Vogel-Nakamura, Kevin Fierling and Lucas Morisette): SILVER

I don’t think the BC Team has ever had a day where all four relay teams have won a medal and a week where all three of the top athlete trophies went to BC girls.

Friday is the Patrol Race which is a race unique to cadet biathlon. It is sort of a cross between a team relay and a supersprint and very fun!
