Once again, the Fort St. James Secondary School Ski and Board Team rocked the zones, coming home from Powder King with a pile of medals.

The girls snowboard team took first place as a team, and Sarah King once again beat out the rest, with a first place female snowboarder finish and she was the second fastest boarder overall. There were 26 female boarders competing.

The girls ski team took second place, with the speedy Gabriella Willick once again near the top as the second fastest female skier out of 30 and she was the third fastest amongst both male and female skiers.

The boys ski team won third place this time around, with Liam Willick as the third fastest male out of 37.

The team only includes a couple male boarders, but Oscar Croucher’s time was eighth fastest among a field of 64 male boarders, and so he also qualifies for the provincials.

The team will now be training up for the provincials in Whistler on March 2-5.

Coach Sarah Grill said the team could not have done it without the continued support of the community, Murray Ridge, the municipality, regional district and local businesses which for the past five years have helped the team.

Traveling to provincials each year is a significant commitment of time and funds and it would not be possible without the community.
