Saskatchewan added a pair of medals over the weekend – silver in female basketball and bronze in male baseball – to bring the medal count to 10 for the province at the midway point of the 2022 Canada Summer Games.
Hannah Ouellette won the province’s opening medal of the Games – a bronze in the women’s 14-26 50-metre butterfly multi-class para S1-7.
Seven wrestlers followed the lead of Ouellette on Aug. 11, winning five silver medals and two bronze medals on the mat. Alexandra Templeton, Donovan Neudorf, Myah Clatney, Shelby Guerin-Daniels and Myah Phillips won silver medals, while Julia Petryna and Olivia Rose reached the podium in the bronze position.
After a 61-57 win over Quebec in semifinal action, Saskatchewan punched their ticket to the gold medal game of women’s basketball. Saskatchewan fell just short to Alberta in the final with a 71-60 loss.
On the diamond, Saskatchewan defeated British Columbia in men’s baseball on Saturday, with a 6-5 win in the bronze medal game. It is Saskatchewan’s fourth-ever Games medal in baseball.
