About: Colonel By’s junior girls Nordic ski team were winners of their division’s OFSAA championship. The team of Kaia Thomas, Amalia Tinmouth and sisters Paige and Jemima Saravanamuttoo captured four of the top 12 placings in their race to win their school its first provincial Nordic banner in more than 20 years. Paige Saravanumutto came in 5th place, followed by Tinmouth in 7th, Thomas in 9th and Jemima Saravanumuttoo in 12th. Greta Mader-Stevens finished 123rd as the team’s alternate. Only the top four placing skiers’ scores counted towards the team’s gold medal-winning score of 33, which was well in front of the silver medallists from Huntsville High School, who had a team score of 70. The OFSAA championships were held in Huntsville, with the junior girls’ race taking place on Feb. 20.
