Harrison, Dale leave mark on local sports scene

Michelle Harrison is a decorated track and field athlete with a rejuvenated career.

Emmarae Dale continues to make headlines in tackle football.

Friday’s new content for the “Howe Happenings” blog has a decidedly “Girl Power” theme to it. Harrison and Dale are both persons of high character, so it is great to have features on both on the “Howe Happenings” blog.

Harrison started training at the Gordie Howe Sports Complex just a handful of months ago. A veteran track and field athlete, she talks about how her career has had downs that have gone along with her ups.

Despite the downs, Harrison was able to rejuvenate her career and has just come off a spectacular final season with the University of Saskatchewan Huskies women’s track and field team. She is aiming to build off the positive momentum she created with the Huskies.

Dale is a familiar face around these parts having played four seasons with the Saskatoon Valkyries of the Western Women’s Canadian Football League. She has been a regular on the Saskatoon Minor Football Field turf. You can also find her working the front desk counter at Ignite Athletics.

When it was announced on September 15 the star linebacker was added to the roster of the CJFL’s storied Saskatoon Hilltops, Dale has since been on a media tour doing interviews for outlets locally, in Western Canada and nationally.

She was also a member of the Huskies women’s track and field team the past four seasons specializing in throwing events.

New content will be released on the ninth day of each month. We hope you will enjoy the stories that make up the posts on the “Howe Happenings” blog.
