ISA National Skiing Championships

On a day that could have brought snow, the Ski squad head to Hemel for the Indoor ISA Ski competition. With lots of schools attending and 183 competitors, it was going to be a tough event. We competed against schools who were a part of the ISA and schools that weren’t, so we wouldn’t know until the end of the day where we would be placed.

Hasan Manji and Henry Lorenz skied as individuals rather than part of a team and did so with good confidence considering it was their first competition. Henry had two very consistent runs, and overall came 15th in his age category, and Hasan came 27th in the U14 group.

Our team skier of Charlotte Ingram, Kyle Gomes, Vivek Rav and Georgia Millburn were next up and produced some good times, placing 3rd, 31st, 26th and 14th respectively. Not knowing what was what, it was a real surprise to find out that Charlotte had come 3rd overall in the U14 ISA category and as a team it was even more of a surprise to find out that we came 3rd overall. The smiles on the faces of the team was clear to see and I was delighted with their success. Well done to all the skiers and I am sure with more practise the squad can improve upon these places and start winning more medals in the future.
