Another Canada Games is in the books.
Team Saskatchewan wrapped up its Canada Games experience on Sunday in the Niagara region of Ontario. In total, 32 medals were awarded to Team Saskatchewan — good for seventh in the medal standings. Of those 32, three were gold.
Saskatchewan finished the Games in style, as the men’s volleyball team won gold on Sunday with a 3-1 win over Alberta in the gold medal game (25-21, 25-17, 25-27. 25-22). The medal was the final of the Games for Saskatchewan.
It was Borden, Sask.’s Savannah Sutherland who won Saskatchewan’s first gold medal on Friday. Sutherland, who was a Youth Female Athlete of the Year nominee for the 2020 Saskatchewan Sport Awards, finished first in the female 400-metre hurdles. Sutherland recently competed for Canada at the 2022 World Athletics Championship.
“I’m really proud to represent the province, we’re one of the smaller provinces and this just proves we can go out there and compete with all the bigger ones too. So, I’m really proud of that,” said Sutherland.
Saskatoon’s Logan Reider was named Saskatchewan’s flag bearer for the Closing Ceremony, after she led the female basketball team to a silver medal and female volleyball team to a fourth-place finish.
“Logan embodies all the characteristics of a flag bearer, and we are proud to have her lead Team Sask into the Closing Ceremony,” said Mark Bracken, Team Saskatchewan’s Chef de Mission.
