Local athletes join Games track and field core team


STELLARTON – Four members of Pictou County Athletics are on Nova Scotia’s 2017 Canada Summer Games core team.

The list includes McCayla Cullen, Megan Graham, Lauren Quann and Kaelan Schmidt.

Two other members were unable to try out for the core team due to a conflict with the Royal Canadian legion championship: Tatum McLean and Jake Temple.

At this point the list is not final and athletes have a chance to get added on after applying to the head coach as the season goes on.

Team members will be invited to monthly sessions to receive information about the upcoming Games including sessions on sport nutrition and mental performance, in addition to event specific technical sessions.
