Summer Update



With less than month left until everyone heads back to school here is a little summary of what the alpine team has been doing the past few months.

For starters two of our fabulous skiers (Sierra and Hannah) are now abroad for fall semester, Sierra down under in Melbourne Australia, and Hannah just made it to Namibia Africa!
While in Melbourne Sierra was able to get in touch with one of our incoming freshman skiers, Annabel Mahon, and got to ski with her for a few days at Mt. Buller!

Many of our other skiers were able to hit the slopes over the summer too.
Two incoming freshmen, Griffin and Tagert Mueller, were able to ski at Whistler, and Hannah was also at Whistler this summer.

We have so much to look forward to this season including the fact that we have 8 incoming freshmen, yes thats right 4 boys and 4 girls. We have quite the full team this season and we will definitely be taking advantage of that! 

Go Bobcats!

NCAA Regionals/Middlebury Carnival

Our final carnival was this past weekend at the Middlebury Snow Bowl.
This carnival marked the last carnival for our seniors Chris Bradbury, Cody Bullen, and Tanner Dirtstine. We will miss you guys!

Result wise some of our women had impressive GS results, and Chris Bradbury had a good GS race as well.

Unfortunately no one from our team will be heading to NCAAs after this years qualification proved to be extremely competitive, especially on the women's side where a few of us just barely missed the last few spots.
Overall our team had a good season full of consistent skiing and solid results. We had some great team scores on the women's side such as our 3rd place at the UVM carnival and being consistently in the top 5 for both GS and SL. After this years results full of career bests and team bests we are very excited for the next carnival season and the remainder of the fis races we will be doing.
