Way back when, Britner was among several promising teenaged athletes yours truly profiled while interning at the Halifax Daily News. (Others included Adrienne Power, who will probably run for Canada in Beijing, Olympic snowboarder Sarah Conrad and a hockey player for the Dartmouth Subways midget AAA team who also had the initials S.C., but whose full name escapes me. Wonder what happened to him.)
Here's wishing Britner well.
