The Strathcona Nordics Devo team of 27 young racers made a long journey to Revelstoke last week to take part in the BC Midgets Championships. The team represented Vancouver Island well and brought home several medals in cross-country ski racing.

In the classic technique races, the team enjoyed many top five finishes including a gold medal and provincial title for Emmy Stapff. Other top five finishers include Ross Lamon, Stephen Lamon, Amelia Wells, Annelies Henckel and Carson Damery.

On Sunday, the Devos battled for every inch in the sprint skate races, and Ross Lamon captured a gold and provincial title. Other top five finishes included Amelia Wells (2nd), Emmy Stapff (3rd), Stephen Lamon (2nd), Annelies Henckel (4th), Carson Damery (2nd), Gavin Johnston (3rd), and Hugo Henckel (5th).

Hugo Henckel and Kai McGrady won technique awards, and the club placed second overall in aggregate awards. The coaches say, “In the next two years, the team strives towards clinching the provincial title, as their motto is ‘continuous improvement, one training and one race at a time.'”
