The Dublin School Alpine team just finished up this seasons NEPSAC Championships up at Shawnee Peak. The team brought five girls and five guys to compete, and Dublin represented one of 8 competing schools for the girls and 10 different schools for the guys. It was an all day event with two GS runs in the morning and two SL runs in the afternoon. The temperatures were slightly lower than some members on the team were used to but everyone broke out the puffy jackets and muscled through! 

Both teams put their best foot forward today and showed it with fantastic results. The girls side worked together and made their way to the podium with a third place overall team finish. The guys had a few crashes throughout the day, but despite the DNFs they came just shy of the podium with an commendable finish of fourth place.
