In all it was a great U18-U21 Western Region Championship at Mission Ridge with many solid performances from the CMAC racers. This championship is comprised of teams throughout the western US, with participants selected from the top competitors in each division. Even being selected to the championship team is a significant accomplishment!
Highlights included Keith McNabb skiing out of 65th start position in GS to move into the top 10 the first day and moving from 65 to 6th on the first run of the second day. Andrew Osborne took a hard crash in the GS and had to take a few days off, but should be back racing this weekend. The other boys- Lawrence, Nick, Christian all enjoyed some great move ups- some 30+ places for Lawrence, Christian and some 40+ move ups from Nick, attacking from the back.
The ladies also had some great move ups through the events- with Makaela, Stephanie, Jenna and Natalie all advancing 30-40 spots throughout the weekend. In particular, Jenna moving up 42 positions in Slalom was a highlight.
