Family connections at the 2017 Canada Summer Games
Many Prince Edward Island athletes are enjoying connecting with family members this week at the 2017 Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg. In the photo at left, Hunter River’s Alyssa Weeks, right, had an opportunity to watch her cousin, Quinci Birker, play beach volleyball with Team British Columbia Sunday. Weeks is a member of Team P.E.I.’s athletics contingent. Meanwhile, Alana Murphy was in Winnipeg on the weekend to watch her brother, Tynan, compete with Ethan Boyd as Prince Edward Island’s men’s beach volleyball team. Alana, who now lives in Red Deer, Alta., teamed up with Lindsey Theuerkauf to represent P.E.I. during the 2009 Canada Games beach volleyball tournament in Summerside.
