The Dublin School Snowboard Team traveled to Gunstock Mountain Resort to compete in a Giant Slalom competition. It was a dominating performance by both the Girls and Boys teams.
Senior Captain Lucy Martin (New Canaan, CT) lead her team with support from Junior Alissa Muise (Blue Hill, ME) and Freshman Imogen VonMertens (Hancock, NH) to a season best 2nd place finish as a team.
On the Boys side, it was also a team effort led by Alexander “AJ” Simpson (New York, NY) blasting down the course with Team Captain Emil Hristache (Peterborough, NH) close on his heels with Top 5 performances! Captain Joe DuPont-Roche (Peterborough, NH) supported by a breakout run by Yifu Zhang (Beijing, China) enabled the Team to capture First Place in their division.
The Teams hard work on all conditions is paying off with this performance on icy conditions. Every member of the Team completed both runs which few teams accomplished. Our Team was most proud of Arthur Garcia (Union City, NJ) who competed for the first time and showed us all what hard work, determination and never giving up means.
We also want to acknowledge Coach Sophia Rabb’s contribution and inspiration on the slopes. Next week we head off to Okemo, Vermont for a Slopeside/Park competition.
