U14 schedule 1/30 – 2/1

Team Okemo U14’s served notice this past weekend! Everyone pushed themselves and there were outstanding results throughout the field. The boys were able to score three top 15 results both days and the Okemo girls impressed the field with 8 in the top 15 both Saturday and Sunday, plus the girls swept the top 4 at the Suicide 6 Slalom on Sunday! In addition to these top 15 results, many racers had great runs, whether it was just one run or combined finishes. You should be proud of your results. Congratulations to everyone on a fantastic weekend. Keep up the good work. It’s also exciting to see and feel everyone coming together and working as a strong unit: supporting each other and cheering on your teammates. Let’s bring this momentum to Killington. Highline is a challenging hill that requires confidence and commitment, so we will now shift our focus to GS as we prepare for our race on Highline at Killington this Sunday.

I understand that everyone has many commitments and obligations and that weather and traffic can be an issue getting home on the weekends, but I do ask that whenever possible that everyone try to stay for awards and support the entire teams strong efforts. I hope that awards will be presented more timely in the future.

It’s great to have the team Beanpot at it’s rightful home: Okemo Mountain…let’s try to maintain possession!
As promised I will be shaving my beard!

On behalf of all of the U14 coaches, thank you for providing us with such great lunches. It’s such a treat to have our lunch on the hill and we appreciate all you do for us.

Well, it appears everyone has done their snow dance and we are in for a whopper! Have a great week and enjoy the snow!

Coach Pete
