Rylee Mitchell and Thompson Weegar, track and field athletes with the Alberni Valley Track Club, are being awarded Athletes of the Year, in the Midget category, from The BC Athletics Association.

Mitchell will receive the award for Javelin and Weegar will receive the award for 300 metre athletic event and discus.

The two athletes will be travelling to Vancouver on Saturday, Dec. 7 to attend the BC Athletics Awards Banquet to accept their awards.

Ironically, Weegar has moved to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan (his father, Tom Weegar, is the new president and CEO at Cumberland College, based in Nipawin) and will compete for that province next year.

He is enrolled in a track and field academy at St. Mary’s Catholic School in Prince Albert.
