Sam B and Thomas S in Form VI represented Longacre at the SATIPS and IAPS skiing competitions held at Hemel Hempstead on Monday. The boys took part in the pre-race training on the Sunday evening for some last minute practice and enjoyed tucking into the hotel buffet breakfast on Monday morning!
The first competition was organised by SATIPS and involved a stubby slalom. This was Sam’s first ever race and he was unfortunate to get a DSQ on his first run. However, he put down a very solid second run to secure seventh place in the U11 boys. A great result!
The second competition in the afternoon was organised by IAPS. It comprised two races, a stubby slalom and a giant slalom. Again, each race had two runs with the best time counting. Sam finished that day with a highly respectable 21st in the slalom and 20th in the GS.
Thomas had a series of tremendous runs in all the competitions and came home with all three gold medals in the U11 boys category.
Well done boys!Categories: News
