For the 7th year in a row, our skiers have won the Lower Mainland Zone Championship.
York House finished 1-7 in the race, with Megan taking the Gold, Arizah taking Silver, and Emma taking Bronze. Siobhan, Erin, Amelia, and Olivia rounded out our top 7. The girls braved a -17 day on Blackcomb and everyone that competed skied extremely well.
Our snowboarders, while reduced in numbers because of injuries, also did very well. Sophie took home first place and Joanna finished third. With these results, both girls have qualified as individuals for the Provincials despite us not being able to qualify a team.
The team has one more race on Feb 21st and then have the Provincials in Whistler from March 3-5.
The Ski and Snowboard team competed in their zone finals today at Blackcomb and had great success.
The Ski Team won their 7th straight Zone Championship with Arizah K. finishing first, followed by Emma S. and Amelia S. We placed 5 of the top 6 finishers too.
The Snowboard Team also won zones, with Silvia Z. and Sophie V. finishing in 2nd and 3rd place. The girls were all outstanding and have qualified for their 7th straight provincial championship where the skiers will be looking to defend their title and bring the blue banner home for the 5th time since the team was formed.
Please congratulate Arizah, Emma, Amelia, Siobhan, Fiona, Megan, Camille, Jyoti, Silvia, Sophie, Joanna (who raced with a defective binding!), and Jessica L. who is finishing her time with the snowboard team as our only graduating athlete. Well done, girls!
