No luck for Denise Ramsden
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Yellowknife's Denise Ramsden was considered to be one of the favourites to be on the podium at the Canadian Road Cycling Championships in Saint-Georges, Que., late last month but it wasn't to be this year.
Ramsden, who was the runner in last year's women's race, ended up finishing in 14th place overall this year, 34 seconds behind the winner, Joelle Numainville.
She is scheduled to be part of the BC Superweek event beginning on July 10.
Squash for the summer
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The Racquet Club is gearing up for its summer camp season and it would only make sense that the club would be hosting a squash summer camp.
It all gets underway on Monday and it's open to anyone between the ages of eight through 12.
It's an introductory camp and Ozzie Vallejos, head squash pro at the club, said there will be a mixture of on-court and off-court work.
It's happening for the month of July and the sessions will be half-day in length beginning at 1 p.m. each weekday.
Preparations underway for Western Canada Summer Games
SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The Western Canada Summer Games in Wood Buffalo Municipality, Alta., are happening from Aug. 7 to 15 but Sport North is making sure everyone who has made a team will be able to go.
Athletes must register and pay their registration fee before being able to go to the Games and the deadline to do that is on July 13.
