Making tracks at zones

Correlieu ski and snowboarders make it to provincials.

The Correlieu ski and snowboard teams, along with members from QJS took on the best from the zone, with the boys ski and snowboarding teams ploughing their way on to provincials in Whistler.

“It was a great performance by the entire team,” teacher-sponsor Mark Forsythe said.

The Correlieu boys ski team, made up of Chris McGauley, Matt Paul, Brody Lawlor, Ben Johannesen and Devin Longeway placed second at the ski meet.

McGauley helped pull the team into second with a great performance which earned him the honour of being the second fastest male skier at zones.

The Correlieu boys’ snowboard team of Jared Lucas, Brandon Drewcock, Dylan Cathcart, Kyle Mannering and Ryan Wilson managed to crack the top three as well, finishing third at the meet.

Lucas managed to make it into second over all, taking the second fastest time of all the male snowboarders.

Naomi Hunt took third in the girl’s category, snagging herself a position in Whistler as a lone wolf.

Also making Whistler lone wolf-style was Ryan Elden, from QJS,

The teams and individuals will be making their way down south to Whistler in early March, competing with the best the province has to offer March 3 – 5.
