This year’s BC Summer Games came to a close Sunday in Surrey after the final medals were awarded.

The young athletes left with an experience many will remember as one of the most important in their lives.

There were three participants from Rossland: Allie Stanley, Mackenzie Flood and Tayla Koerber.

Stanley participated in the Girls High Jump, Girls Long Jump and the Girls Triple Jump.

Flood took part in the Girls Shot Put, Girls Discus and  Girls Javelin.

Koerber took part in the Girls Triathlon and Girls Duathlon.

Parents came from around the province to support, congratulate and console their children.

They stood out in the crowds of spectators as they waved their team’s colours and cheered on the youngsters from the sidelines.

Although parents’ contributions to an athlete’s success often goes unnoticed, having the opportunity to watch their kids compete at the games is a reward like no other.

Many also expressed their appreciation for the long hours put in by the 3,000 volunteers who helped make the Surrey Games a success.

The BC Games cauldron will be lit again in 2014 in Mission for the BC Winter Games and in Nanaimo for the BC Summer Games.
