  1. The town of Asquith is very proud of Ryan Rousell. Ryan grew up on a farm here, graduated from Lord Asquith High School and learned to fence at the Asquith Fencing Club starting at age 7. Ryan is still a member of our club, training weekly for the Paralympics.

  2. Actually Ryan Rousell is from Asquith, not Saskatoon.
