I hit the road late last week for a quick trip to Ottawa to visit some coaches and athletes. The ByTown crew were hard at work Friday morning, training alongside the Carleton Ravens, under the watchful eyes of Ravens coach John Hawes and ByTown coach Greg Kealey. Everyone looks to be rolling along well and it was good to get a quick visit with Matt V, Jo Brown and Jamie Stephenson.
BROWN NAMED ATHLETE OF THE WEEK
Joanna Brown was named athlete of the week by the Ottawa Citizen. If I knew about this when I was in Ottawa, I would have asked for an autograph.
