Snowboard and SkiCross find powder in the land down under
Killington Mountain School's Snowboard and SkiCross recently wrapped up a training and competition project at Mount Hotham in Australia. Program Director Jeff Juneau reports, "It was a fantastic camp, with lots of training and improvement by all our athletes." Jeff continued his recap of the trip, "On the Snowboard side, it was a very productive trip. Liam Scott had a solid experience as a forerunner, and Henry Wilson had his first Continental Cup race start. Congratulations on stepping up to the big leagues gentlemen! Justin Giltz and Matt Miller continued to develop their racing skills and improve their FIS point profiles along with earning top 16 finishes in their first Australian Cup appearances. Justin earned 12th and 14th place, which will improve his FIS points from 25.05 to on the next points list. Matt landed a 15th and 17th place, boosting his points from 25.75 to . On the SkiCross side, Mazie Hayden locked up bronze in both races after mixing it up on course with World Cup athletes Sami Kennedy-Sim and Nikol Kucherova. McKenna Latt made it into small finals both days finishing with 6th and 7th place finishes. Tomorrow, we head to Melbourne for a little sightseeing before an early flight on Tuesday morning back to the states."
Nice work to the entire group, and we look forward to seeing you back on campus!
