ESSKIA Regional Qualifying Race
The results of today’s race have been released. Charlton’s skiers all gave their best effort and should be very proud of their performances in a very competitive race. With over 200 athletes across all age groups it was a busy day requiring organisation and discipline by all athletes, and their support staff (also known as parents) without whom running an event like this would be much more difficult.
- Charlton Girls A team won the Category I female group, so will be invited to race at the National Finals on Saturday 8 October – well done to Hannah, Nicole, Alannah and Laura.
- The Girls B team of Runica, Tina and Carla also performed well in Category I, showing great progress in their skiing, but unfortunately did not qualify for the next stage.
- Although we do not have sufficient boys to form a team, Adam and Daniel both put in excellent runs and were individually placed 6th and 8th respectively in the Category II Boys (in a field of 26).
[Category I is for skiers in Year 3 to Year 6. Category II is for skiers in Year 7 and Year 8. Although he is in Year 6 Adam skied in Category II in order to make up a partial team, he would have been placed 2nd in Category I.]
We now look forward to more success for the Girls A team at the National Finals, and we also hope that some of the skiers will be invited to join the ESSKIA Junior Squad for further training and development.
