The 2784 GGFG Cadets had some great results this year.
The Biathlon Team consists of 10 Cadets lead by Cadet Master Warrant Officer Gavin Omand, and consisting of Cadet Acting Colour/Sergeant Evan Wight, Cadet Sergeant Rachel FritzNémeth, Cadet Sergeant Amanda Godefroy, Cadet Master Corporal Magnus Crónín, Cadet Master Corporal Thomas Fairweather, Cadet Master Corporal Geneviève Fritz-Németh, Cadet Corporal Max Reesink, Cadet Corporal Oliver Streibel-May and Cadet Guardsman Piaper Veinotte.
Over the past 5 months these 12 dedicated Cadets have given up their Sunday mornings and Monday evenings to develop the skills, strength and endurance required by all Biathletes. While some of these Cadets only really discovered Biathlon this year, others have been competing for a number of seasons.
Braving the cold, sleet and snow, these extraordinary young people represented 2784 GGFG at the Eastern Ontario Area competition where the female team, consisting of Godefroy, FritzNémeth, R. and Veinotte placed 1st and the male team of Omand, Cronin and Streibel-May took 2nd place in their respective categories; allowing 7 of the teams cadets to advance to Provincials in Sault Ste. Marie. At the Sault Ste, Marie competition, the team skied hard and shot straight.
