The Strathcona Nordics Devo team of 27 young racers made a long journey to Revelstoke last weekend to take part in the BC Midgets Championships.

The team represented the North Island well and brought home some medals in the cross-country ski races.

In the classic technique races, the team enjoyed many top five finishes including a gold medal and provincial title for Emmy Stapff (Campbell River) in the girls 2002. 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 races. Gavin Johnston of Campbell River placed third, and Stapff finished third while Ross Lamon captured the Provincial title in the boys 2000. Other top five finishes include Stephen Lamon (second), Wells (second), Annelies Henckel (fourth), Damery (second), and Hugo Henckel (fifth).

Hugo Henckel and Kai McGrady won technique awards, and the club placed second overall in aggregate awards.
