York House Ski Team have just won the 2010-11 Provincial Championships in Kimberley, BC. For the first time ever, York House has won 2 BCSS Provincial Championships in one school year (our swim team took home the championship banner in November).
The girls were amazing and I can’t say enough about their skiing, behaviour and maturity (hard to believe with all grade 8’s except for 2 grade 9s!). The girls managed to bring the banner home after 2 years away. They defeated a very talented Seacove team by 10 points (quite a lot in skiing) and got their revenge for a 1 point loss last year.
Our snowboarders had a challenging championship as they were dealing with a whole lot of new experiences and nerves. Both Silvia and Joanna learned a lot and despite being very inexperienced, managed to represent the school very well and have a bright future ahead of them.
Thanks to all of you for your support of the team and the girls. A large part of the team is now racing for their club team in Panorama – they will be tired when they return!
Kelly – 1st overall skier in BC
Emma – 3rd overall skier in BC
Siobhan – 6th overall skier in BC
