This past Saturday was the NJSC annual State race @ Pico, VT. CraigmeurÂ Race Team shined and had its best results ever, the Womenâ€™s teamÂ broke new ground by taking 1st place by 35 seconds, the Menâ€™s teamÂ had an off day but still finished 4th and combined 2nd place finish.
Now some individualsÂ accomplishments; way to go Anneliese Yombor on taking 1st place for the womenâ€™s for the 6thstraight year not counting maternity leaves, Dawn Mazzanti taking 2ndbehindÂ Anneliese and Kimberly Hollister for cracking the top 10 and taking 9th, was it Kimberlyâ€™s ski rentalâ€™s for the day orÂ the 3 years of french fry turns, regardless she smoked some of the Men, counting yours truly. Chris Yombor as his 2nd place finish and missing 1st place by 2 seconds combine.
Also this past Saturday was the 3rdannual Jr. NJSC race @ Pico. We had 5 jr. racers mostly rookies who braved the icy course on B-slope after the adults finished their 1st GS run.
Some of the accomplished were, Meredith Hollister finishingÂ 2ndin the girls class C division, in the boys class C division we had Jake Yombor taking 2ndand Russell Hollister taking 3rd. In the girls class B division we had Brianne Rachmiel taking 2ndplace and Aaron Rachmiel the only snowboarder finishing 4th in the boys class B division.
Overall I like thank all our the participates for showing up and support the Craigmeur race team, we had 4 Women & 9 Men race. Congrats to Eleanor Young on finishing her 1st race, congrats to Justin Stone with his first NJSC state race, to our fearless leader Larry, hopefully next year youâ€™ll complete the course. To Rob & Craig who trained hard the day before better luck next year.
Looking forward to seeing everybody next year!.
Remember if you want to try racing, we still have two WRNL races @ Hidden Valley, February 10 SL and March 3Â both starting 7:30pm. Also save the date March 20, 2010 is the SSMMPR @ Hunter MT., the race is a Nastar race similar to our club race and we are looking for racers so Craigmeur can again flex their muscles and win the race. Look for more details later in the month but the fees are approx. $45 for lift ticket, race fee, party w/food & prizes and action picture of yourself racing.
