Team Saskatchewan members excited ahead of Western Canada Summer Games
Members of Team Saskatchewan are eagerly anticipated the upcoming Western Canada Summer Games.
The games are being played in Alberta, hosted by the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo which is in the Fort McMurray area.
"I'm really excited to go," Rachael Huber, 17, pitcher for the women's softball team, said Wednesday. "The whole experience has been great and I just can't wait to go to the games and show my skills."
She added she was proud to be one of the representatives of the province at the games.
Another athlete, triathlon competitor Josh Windsor, 16, was similarly excited about the opportunity.
"It's really a neat experience to be representing the province," Windsor said. The triathlon is made up of cycling, running and swimming.
Windsor noted there has been a bit of a rivalry among triathlon competitors from Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
"We'd like to beat them in these games," he said.
The games take place from Aug. 7 to 16.
