Sports Notes

Moore family brings home gold galore; baseball champs; Spalding Cup; orienteering

The Moore family vehicle was weighed down with gold.

Brothers Stephen and Eric Moore combined for 12 gold medals – each won six gold and Eric won nine medals in total, while sister Julianne won one – as part of the Vernon AAA Track Club contingent that took part in the Kamloops Centennial Meet at Hillside Stadium on the May long weekend.

Julianne won gold in the 11-year-old girls 60-m hurdles.

Also on the women’s side, Glynis Sim was a double gold winner.

 

Baseball champs

In a dramatic finish, the Salmon Arm Bantam 2 baseball team downed the powerful White Rock Dodgers, 9-7, in the West Kelowna tournament’s championship game last Sunday, May 24.

The White Rock coach said he couldn’t have asked for a better game to end the tournament and Salmon Arm should be proud of the teams they are producing.

Spalding Cup

The Salmon Arm Golf Club is gearing up for the 88th annual Spalding Cup this weekend. The  tournament is the longest running two-man, best-ball tournament in B.C. More than 200 golfers are expected to participate.

 

Finding their way

Armed with only a map, a compass, and an electronic timing device, 65 participants listened for the words. Ready. Set. Go! They were participating in this past Monday’s orienteering event in Park Hill.

Orienteering is a sport in which the participants try to reach a series of checkpoints using a map and a compass as quickly as they can. This was the first of five in a series of Monday night events going until the end of June. Next week’s will start at the Bastion school field at 5:30 pm. Online registration is preferred, but race day sign up is available.
