For the first time in SHSH history, we have a Skiing and Snowboarding team! Our inaugural season commenced with our first three competitors ever: Grade 9 students Anneke Stroink and Sally Bourne, and Grade 8 student Kate Childs, taking to the slopes at Ski Wentworth for the Capital Racing Series. Our team has since become co-ed, with the addition of 5 male students: Sam Barbara (Gr. 10), Charlie Simms (Gr. 9), Isaac Barbara (Gr. 9), Charlie Barbara (Gr. 6), and Henry Simms (Gr. 6).
Recently, Kate qualified for Provincials after finishing in a three-way-tie in the Junior Girls Capital Region racing series, and captured first and second place in the Atlantic Slalom Cup. Our intermediate boys team has also qualified for Provincials after finishing in the top of their racing series, and Charlie Simms finished second and third in the Atlantic Slalom Cup alongside Kate.
We’re so proud of all of our winter athletes who have put their heart into their first season of competitive skiing/snowboarding with SHSH, and we’ll be rooting for them as they compete at the Provincials on March 6th at Ski Wentworth.
