White Rock sharpshooters strike gold

A pair of cadets from White Rock’s 907 Black Knights Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron are headed to Quebec next month.

A pair of cadets from White Rock’s 907 Black Knights Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron are headed to Quebec next month to participate in the national biathlon championships.

The duo – Tristan Dyke and Arman Soheili – earned a spot at nationals after landing on the podium at zone championships earlier this month at Mount Washington on Vancouver Island.

Dyke won two gold medals, in the male youth individual and sprint categories, while Soheili took home a pair of bronze medals in the male junior division.

The two cadets were part of a four-person team from the 907 Squadron – and among more than 70 cadets from across the province – to test their fitness, skiing and marksmanship over courses that ranged from 4.5 to 10 km.

Dyke and Soheili will now prepare for nationals, set for Valcartier, Que.
