Nordics on provincial teams

Five Vancouver Island cross-country skiers selected for B.C. teams

Five Strathcona Nordics racers were recently named to provincial teams.

Avalon Wasteneys (Campbell River) was named to the BC Ski Team. Alec Stapff (Campbell River) and Morgan Meckert (Comox) were named to the BC Development Team. Tallon Noble (Merville) and Ross Lamon (Comox) were named to the BC Talent Squad.

Cross-Country BC selects racers for teams based age and performance in the past season and offers them opportunities for extra training.

These teens recently headed off with their coach Andrea Stapff to provincial race camps where they met up with their provincial coaches and teammates from other clubs for a long weekend of intensive, dry-land training.

The club would like to thank coach Andrea for getting the kids “there” in more ways than one! To learn more about the Strathcona Nordic Ski Club, visit their website
