Date posted: 06/01/16
Burgess Hill Girls Junior and Senior Team Ski Teams took part in the annual Independent Ski School Championships held in Les Deux Alpes, France for the very first time this year. Each team consisted of eight girls competing in the Individual Slalom, Giant Slalom and the Team Parallel Slalom. The girls had the opportunity of receiving some racing coaching for the first two days and were competing against 14 other schools from the UK. There were 78 Junior and 125 Senior competitors taking part in the competition. The girls skied extremely well considering this was their first experience of racing. Many congratulations to Annabel H who finished in 9th place in the U13 Individual Girls Slalom and Megan B who finished in 4th place in the U11 Individual Slalom. The highlight of the trip has to be the amazing achievement of The Junior Team who went onto claim Bronze in the Junior Team Slalom and Vicky H in the U18 Individual slalom. A fabulous achievement. The girls will look to build from here and have the opportunity of entering other competitions. Well done.
