The latest inductees to Quesnel’s Sports Hall of Fame were introduced at this week’s (April 12) North Cariboo Joint Planning Committee.
They are athletes that have finished first at the provincial or national level.

They included Canadian Biathlon champion Kyra Teetzen, BC Junior Breakaway Roping champion Dyson Leneve, Provincial Motocross Champion Jackson Nickolet and BC Archery champion Kelly Murray.
Natasha Hanson, Luca Armstrong and Lauren Pastachak were all recognized for their achievements in swimming at the provincial level.

Emerie won two BC and two Canadian titles last year.
