It was a great time to celebrate the success of local athletes in June.

Athletes and their families were treated to a special night of awards at Dryden High School. The school held their annual Eagles Awards Banquet, where the school honoured and recognized athletes across the board. 

Rhiannon Lee won the female athlete of the year award, as well as four other awards. Jarett Hicks and Thomas Moline both won the male athlete of the year award and the senior boys basketball MVP award. Moline also took home the MVP award for boys soccer, and Hicks also won the offensive-line MVP for Eagles football. 

Seven local athletes went home after well representing Northwestern Ontario at the Van Dijk Legacy Classic in Winnipeg. The event took place on Sunday at the Pantages Playhouse Theatre as part of the Canadian Physique Alliance, and Rae-ann Penner of Q104 and Kenora took 1st place in the Open Bikini Tall Class.

Jeff and Blair Dingwall had to wait until the very end to weigh in, but they made it worth the wait. After landing in first place at the end of day one of the Tbaytel Walleye Masters in Dryden, the father-son duo added over 15 pounds to their weight to launch themselves back to the top with a final weight of 32.88lbs.

Blaine Forsythe played for the Kenora AAA Midget Thistles in the early 90’s – winning the Manitoba AAA Midget Championship – and won the Stanley Cup as an assistant coach with the Washington Capitals.
