Oak Bay High’s Ski and Snowboard Team posted its most successful season since forming in the 2013/2014 school year.
“This year was filled with excellent snow conditions, great training opportunities, growing friendships and friendly but tough competition,” said coach Tina Horwood.
“The team made huge strides over the previous two seasons on the hill. This is due to the great dedication from our skiers and snowboarders, and snow that we could actually dig into and carve.”
All team members performed well with multiple skiers who placed in the top three on the Island: Patricia Horwood second, Henrike Heitmann third, Logan Rampton second, and Liam Morgan third.
Horwood also credits parent volunteers who drove to Mt. Washington early on Sunday mornings, stayed for overnights, helped with race set-up and timing and ultimately helping them see a successful season.
“We look forward to defending our titles as Island champions for both the girls’ and boys’ ski teams, and hopefully adding a snowboard title next year,” Horwood said.
