Team Sask Archery caps off competition with Recurve Team Mix Silver
RED DEER, AB (March 1, 2019): Team Sask Archery has concluded its amazing run at the 2019 Canada Winter Games, with Hunter Chipley (Estevan) and Jay Gegner (Regina) earning a Silver medal in the Recurve Team Mix event on Archery's final day of competition. All four athletes that made up the team will walk away with hardware: 1 Gold (Chipley, Individual Recurve), 1 Silver (Chipley/Gegner, Recurve Team), and 2 Bronzes (Jacob Bourassa, Individual Compound; Bourassa/J'Lynn Mitchell, Compound Team). See full results here.
Gegner, 17, trains out of the Fronteir Bowmen Archery Club under coach Sherman Brown. Chipley, also 17, trains out of the Estevan Archery Club under his coach and father, Ken Chipley. Though these are their first Canada Games, both have won medals at the 2018 Canadian National Championships. See Hunter's full bio here and see Jay's full bio here.
Athletes who compete at the Canada Games represent the country’s next generation of national, international, Olympic and Paralympic champions. Team Sask alumni and Olympic medalists Mark McMorris, Catriona Le May Doan, and Emily Clark can all count their previous Canada Games experiences as a stepping stone to the highest levels of sport, as can Paralympians Brittany Hudak, Nic Goncin and Lisa Franks.
