Youth Women Snowboarders Finish Top 10 in USA

Our youth women and Jr. Women raced Tuesday in Slalom and Wednesday in Giant Slalom. More exciting racing!

Tuesday – Slalom. Josie and Emily made it to the finals taking the 4th and 5th spots. Unfortunately, that placed our racers head to head in the first heat. Josie Josie edged out Emily by .0146 seconds and advanced to the top medal heat. In the end, Josie finished in 4th and Emily took 7th – two national top ten finishes! Julianne, who is in the age group above Josie and Emily, also had two clean qualifying runs and finished in 14th place – top 15! It was an exciting day and a lot of fun!

Wednesday – Giant Slalom. Another great race day but the weather turned right in the middle of the competition. In near white out conditions, the girl’s powered through. Emily made it into the quarter finals. Emily ended up 5th in the Nation. Way to go Emily!

Next up, the boy’s in Slalom. Good luck to Chandler, Kubo and Shred.
