Stanstead kids come home with Amer­i­can tro­phies

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

Twolo­cal Stanstead chil­dren, twins Ca­resse and Cazian Comeau-El­man, have been ex­celling just south of the bor­der in their re­spec­tive pas­times. Ca­resse, who tap dances with the North Coun­try School of Dance, in New­port, re­ceived the gold and plat­inum rib­bons at an Amer­i­can na­tional dance com­pe­ti­tion held in Mas­sachusetts last March. She has been tap-danc­ing for five years, since she was only four.

Cazian, who is a mem­ber of the North­East King­dom Pythons Youth Wrestling Club, in Coven­try, re­cently came home with the State Cham­pi­onship af­ter a record of 19 and 0 dur­ing the regular sea­son. “As far as we know there has never been a Canadian with the Amer­i­can State Cham­pi­onship be­fore,” said Cazian’s fa­ther, Wil­lie El­man, who also com­mented that it was hard to find ac­tiv­i­ties lo­cally for chil­dren.
