Falcons bury the competition

Great team and individual performances by Fernie Secondary skiers and snowboarders resulted in an overall win for both teams at the 2013 East Kootenay Alpine Zone Championships on February 13.

Over 125 young athletes from seven different schools in the region attended the event, competing in giant slalom and ski/board cross races. The Falcons took first place in four out of the six categories: girls ski team, boys ski team, girls snowboard team, and girls snowboard team board cross.

A few standout Fernie competitors qualified for provincials with their individual performances; Montana Andreola came in second and Thea Gimard took third place for the girls’ giant slalom, with Kyle Maclean placing second for the boys’ giant slalom race.

The Fernie Falcons ski and snowboard teams are now switching gears and will spend the next few weeks hard at work practicing and fundraising in preparation for the provincial championships in Smithers, B.C. this March.
