Sea to Sky-area athletes have returned home after a number of solid showings at the 2024 Lhtako Quesnel BC Winter Games.

Holden Wilson added another bronze medal to his collection in the boys' individual biathlon, where he finished close behind victorious William Bertrand and runner-up Tobin Kerr. Reed Murray was 14th. 

In the individual girls' discipline, Claire Benson barely missed out on hardware in fourth place. Tamiris McNern prevailed, Renna Penchuk clocked in for silver and Ella Broadworth snagged bronze. 

Namuniskoo Lammens raced to sixth at the girls' cross-country interval start, ahead of fellow Spud Valley Nordics contestant Veya Stevens who was ninth. Amelia Moore bested all comers, while Soleil Bitting settled for second and Adelie Albert came third. 

Lammens found herself eighth at the sprint event and Stevens wound up tenth once more. The medals went to Albert (gold), Adelaide Walton (silver) and Bitting (bronze).

Meanwhile, Ethan Adanac managed a seventh-place effort in juvenile boys' figure skating. Charles Prothero-Brooks stood atop that particular podium, accompanied by Kevin Liu and Botao Qian in that order.

Benson and Wilson secured bronze medals on the first day of the Games.
