Fort St. James Secondary Falcons Ski and Snowboard team shredded to many medals at the provincials held in Whistler Blackcomb from March 1 to 3.

Coach Sarah Grill said at provincials there are three full days of racing and therefore there are different placings for each day. The first day is a giant slalom and the second day is a terrain cross style course. There were 53 girl skiers, 69 boy skiers, 31 girl snowboarders and 64 boy snowboarders, she added.

In girls snowboarding Sierra McNeill rode to a second place win, Mara Martin achieved third place, Minna Jones garnered fifth, Lissy Kosmick (Duchess Park) got sixth and Sydnee Schlamp came in ninth place. In girls snowboarding terrain cross, Minna Jones won first place and Mara Martin seventh. For girls overall snowboarding, Martin won second, Jones got third and McNeill came fourth.

Oscar Croucher came first in snowboarding overall after wining first place in snowboarding grand slalom , and second place in boys snowboarding terrain cross.

Top skiers in the giant slalom were Ella Davis coming in 22nd place and Nolan Sampson in 40th. Top skiers in the terrain cross were Jaynee Gauthier in 31st place and Nathan Johnson in 48th.

Sending a shout out to communities of Fort St. James, Nak’adli, the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako, the businesses, community members and parents for their continued support, on behalf of the coaches and athletes, Grill said without the support such achievements and experiences would not be possible.

“The success of these amazing athletes is a testament to their time and dedication to the sport,” she said.
