Ponoka athletes showcased at Masters

Two bronze medals won in golf and cycling

Two Ponoka athletes came away with medals from last month’s 2019 Alberta Masters Games in Rocky Mountain House.

Jean-Paul Desaulniers was one of two men golfers to be awarded the bronze medal after scoring a 141. The other was from Rocky Mountain House.

Meanwhile, Terence Dahms captured the bronze in the 50 to 59-year-old cycling road race.

The majority of Ponoka participants competed in the golf event, both in the low net and low gross competitions.

While Desaulniers got a medal in the first one, he wound up placing 45th in the other.

Other golfers included: Darren Josephison (22 net, 30 gross); Scott Shimp (40 net, 22 gross); Cal David (79 net, 57 gross); Roger Schell (results unavailable) and on the women’s side Maureen Schell (results unavailable).

One other event that featured a number of Ponoka athletes was the women’s 50 and over hockey tournament.

Monica Brennan, Fran Costello, Sharon Klinger and Deanna Waknuk competed for Team Voodoo in the short round robin event.

The club ended up losing all four of its games with a club from Calgary winning gold.
