Medals for Boys' School Skiers

August 29, 2013 at 3:03 PM

It was a close race for the gold medal at this year’s North Island Primary School Ski and Snowboard competition at Whakapapa ski field. Over 650 students in 130 teams from around the North Island gathered in what proved to be less than satisfactory conditions. Our two ski teams competed in the Giant Slalom competition on the first day of racing but the second day was cancelled due to bad weather. Consequently the overall results were drawn from the first day with the Boys’ Senior team beating King’s by a very narrow margin to win gold! Congratulations to Theo Gilbertson who placed 3rd individually.

The 2nd team also had a good day’s skiing placing third overall with Ben McCutcheon as their highest individual in 5th place.
