STAGS Ski Team Achieve Great Success in The Eastern Region Schools Ski Race

2

On Sunday 30 April STAGS A ski team competed against over 300 skiers in the exciting Eastern Region Schools Ski Race held in Norwich. The STAGS A team was made up Katie Barder, Olivia Coombs and Myla Comiskey in Year 9 and Nia Boty in Year 8. The weather was dry, warm and sunny and skiing conditions were good. The team members arrived at about 11.30am and after an open practice and an inspection run all members were ready to ski to win!

After two successful runs through full slalom gates the determined STAGS students were rewarded with a podium place taking silver This was an amazing achievement for the team especially as it was Olivia and Myla’s first ever race!

There were 5 age categories and Nia Boty managed to come first in the U14 event! She also came 5th in the U16s. Our two fabulous STAGS newbies, Olivia and Myla came in a respectable 19th and 21st place. Well done girls.
