March 1 – U14 – Mansfield Ski Club – Final GS Race
Well what a finish!!! Under sunny blue skies, the U14’s headed back up to Mansfield for their last regular season race and boy did they show up. With 3 girls in the top 10, 4 boys in the top 10 and many more in the top 20, our MHRC racers finished first in team points. FIRST in team points!!! No small feat considering the strength of the teams we were up against. As with any single race, our team had some personal bests and we had some DNF’s, and thats just how racing goes. But when we look back at the season as a whole, I am really proud of what the team has accomplished and it has been a lot of fun to see each racers skiing improve. The racers trained hard week in and week out, but they did not do it alone. Thank you to all the parents for supporting the team both on and off the hill, in the canteen, during races and everything else in between. And most importantly, HUGE THANK YOU to our coaches Jeff, Brook, Chris and Jade. We were so lucky to have such a great team of knowledgeable and hardworking coaches. Thank you all for a great season!
