This week’s athlete of the week is a two-for-one, with Grade 6 students Aurora Goerlitz and Sadie Sussey engaging in some good, old-fashioned horseplay. The Penticton Christian School’s annual Sports Day took place on Oct. 2. The school had six teams take part in multiple different sports by rotating through stations and earning points for their teams. According to Tania Dicer, with the school, the day was a great way for the students to bond and have fun while they practice their athletic skills in friendly competition. (Contributed)
