The Ski Team had yet another remarkable season as they finished hitting the slopes at the end of January. The team has consistently devoted their Thursday and Saturday nights to this sport and has finished on a strong edge. Throughout their five races, the team has shown how they are able to overcome adversities caused by unexpected weather conditions. Even when the slopes were more ice than snow, when the weather was below freezing, or when raining fogged their goggles, they were still able to perform extremely well. Their hard work and dedication to this sport have also clearly shown throughout the season with their improved ski skills and faster times!

This year, two outstanding skiers took a trip to Mt. Lacrosse on February 17 and 18 to participate in the Wisconsin High School State Championships: Amanda Meyer (‘20) and Garrett Miner (‘19). For senior Garrett Miner, this was his fourth year qualifying for state; junior Amanda Meyer competed for her first time.

“Our season was really one to remember and I will never forget all of the memories that were made” commented Miner about his last season. Meyer also expressed her excitement before the state competition, “I had so much fun this season! I am very excited for state since it is my first year qualifying and I don’t know what to expect, but I know it will be a lot of fun. Also, the team is super close so we have a lot of fun together. Hopefully, we can take both teams to state next year!”.

Congratulations, racers, and get ready to dominate next season!
