Summer Update 2017!

Summer Update 2017

It’s already August, and with only a month left until the bobcat alpine team heads east for fall semester we have been amping up the dryland and summer skiing hoping for an awesome 2018 season.

The whole team has been up to a lot this summer from summer skiing, internships, and various trips!

Here are just a few highlights of some of the bobcat skiers.

Incoming freshman Calvin Wilson and senior Hannah Johnson started out skiing in Mammoth! Hannah is now currently ripping it up in Chile for a few weeks.

Incoming freshman Amelia Kaplan, sophomore Tagert Mueller, and senior Sierra Ryder are all in New Zealand prepping for the season and appearing in a few New Zealand races. Tagert Mueller won a race in NZ scoring a personal best too!
Sophomore Emma Finfer skied in Hood for a week as well!

Ski Season Wrap Up

Just like that our 2016/2017 ski season has come to a close-officially.
After carnival season finished in February we have been busy at NCAAs, NorAms, Eastern Cups, US Nationals, and Canadian races. After a long month and a half of spring racing we have finally finished and are ready for some very much needed sun and break.
The semester is almost done as well (one more week!!) and the alpine team will be taking a little break before getting right back into training and getting in shape.
Next season starts now right?!

In the mean time we would like to thank everyone and anyone who has supported the Alpine team this year, we so greatly appreciate it!

Additionally we would like to give a shout out to Kelsey Chenoweth who is graduating this spring, congrats on everything Kels!

Thanks for a great season bobcats and bobcat supporters!

Bates Carnival/End of Carnival Season

And just like that our wonderful carnival season is over. Six weeks sure does fly by!

The Bates Carnival/EISA Regionals was very interesting this year...The GS race was a one run race due to the incredibly warm wet weather producing difficult racing conditions. Kelsey Chenoweth had a good one run race ending her GS Carnival season with a 10th place! And congrats to freshman Emma Finfer on an awesome GS run where she ended up 25th for college!!

The slalom races were equally exhilarating with some great skiing by many of our skiers. Michael Cooper had a great second run finishing overall in 7th place and 6th for college!
*Special thanks to Kurt and Dylan for their awesome announcing!

I'd also like to give a huge shoutout to our only senior this year Kelsey Chenoweth on her skiing career. Congratulations on an amazing ski racing career that you should be incredibly proud of. We are going to miss you so much you have no idea.

Looking towards the end of the season we have a few more fis series that we will be doing and NCAAs are in two weeks for our two qualifiers (Kelsey and Michael).
