Whistler Cup


By Fred Wallace

As we hit the Easter Break, I want to go back to the high school scene, and again today go back to the OSCVI.

As we talked yesterday, the Team Hawaii Lady Falcons had a lengthy journey and sporting experience in Girls Volleyball.

The same scenario applies to skier Tannis Boisvert.

While competing domestically in Canada, Boisvert, nevertheless, has had an extended junket in British Columbia on the slopes.

The OSCVI athlete started in late March at the K2 Canadian Championships at Silver Star Resort near Vernon, B.C.

The results she posted over the week long comeptition were top 20 both among the international field and among the Canadian skiers in her age bracket.

Furthermore, Boisvert's times and results were good enough to land her a spot on the Ontario entry for the Whistler Cup which commences tomorrow and runs through Easter Sunday.

As big as the K2 event was, mulitply the number of countries competing by 10, make it an international field and build a competition that has close to 400 skiers racing at Whistler, the very best young skiers aged 11 to 14, and that too is a big event, certainly for Owen Sound's Tannis Boisvert.

Happy Easter.

I'm Fred Wallace
