MHRC Weekly Update- Weekend of Feb 10-11, 2024

Hi MHRC families,

Here is your weekly skiing update for the weekend of Feb 10-11th 2024.

U8/U10 Development

The U8/U10’s had some great fun this past weekend at GE skiing and of course lots of smiles and laughs in the clubhouse!

Our U8 development’s continued to practice different drills learned last weeks. They were introduced the basics of carving ski such as focusing on ski edging and angulation.

U8/U10

Here’s an update for U8/U10 competitive teams.

This week both U8 and U10 teams raced at Chicopee on Saturday, and that was a huge success!

We have two podium finishers in U8 – Claire Chen finished third among U8 girls, and Anthony Kharlap got bronze among U8 boys.

U12

On Saturday, the team travelled to Mansfield Ski Club for a GS.  Despite the warm weather, the courses held up well and we once again had some great results.  We had three girls finish in the top 10: Teagan McEvoy (4th), Ashley Caston (7th) and Erica Georgescu (9th)!

On Sunday, the athletes started focusing on slalom, which was challenging with no gates.  Hoping that the base will allow for gates this weekend as they continue to prepare for their final race.

U14

The team headed north on Sunday for another away training session at MSLM.  The skiers got to train on their GS skis as they prepare for their SOD finals on the 25th.

U16 & U19 Teams

SOD Finals in Collingwood for both the U16 & U19 group!   SOD finals means lots of clubs and lots of competition. The U16s raced at Blue Mountain on Smart Alec, competing along with seven other clubs!

The U19s were at the North End of Blue Mountain on Rabbits Run.

Congrats to all athletes who attended, and shout out to U19s with the following top 15 results:

  • Gunnar Popek 10th – 1:20:19
  • George Bartlett 11th – 1:20:25
  • Carter Allen 12th – 1:22:55
  • Jack Mathews 15th – 1:25:53
