Brandon Plante lines up a shot during the NOW regional cadet competition the weekend of Jan. 13. Five cadets from the 256 Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Patrician participated with the Jr. male team of Quinn Brait and Aiden Paquette advancing to provincials in Sault Ste. Marie in February.
“They raced in teams of two and competed in a relay race. It was a 2 X4.5km race where each skier did a 4.5km course and shot 2 times. They had to ski a 150m penalty loop for each missed target,” said Coach Heather Willis who travelled with the team.
Individual results included Quinn Brait (1st), Brandon Plante (2nd) Aiden Paquette (15th) and Kyle Bates (20th) in Junior. Kyle Gelderland placed 6th in the Senior event. The competition included around 100 cadets from all cadet units in Northwestern Ontario.
