Three Throwers Up For Awards
Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ".
As Summer transitions into Fall, and school commences, so too does Bluewater Athletics at various levels.
Among the highlights will be the start of football, Girls Basketball and Boys Volleyball at the Secondary School level.
Plus, in both High School and Elementary Schools a large contingent of athletes, coaches and coordinators are gearing up for the Cross Country season.
The Elementary meets of note have been staged for decades in October at Saugeen Bluffs for the West and in the East at 4th Canadian Division Training Centre near Meaford.
Looking back a bit, three athletes from the Saugeen Track & Field athletes have been nominated for Athletics Ontario Awards.
All three are throwers; Ben Brewer in Bantam Boys, Ryan Jacklin for Midget Boys & Jeremy Elliot also in the Midget Boys Division.
The 2017 Athletic Ontario Awards Banquet and Hall of Fame Induction takes place in Toronto on Saturday September 30th.
Good luck to the 3 Saugeen throwers and welcome essentially to the Fall season of Bluewater Athletics.
I'm Fred Wallace
