SCHWEITZER U19 CHAMPIONSHIPS
Challenging conditions for racing throughout the series, but the organizers worked hard to only lose one SG per gender. The races were flipped around to accommodate the weather, but the athletes stayed focused and skied great in tough snow conditions. Ty Ellis, Tristan Thomson, Connor Budd and Tess Baldwin represented PNSA. One highlight was Tess Baldwin podium in slalom: 3rd place! The full race report is here.

Samantha Wright won the move up award for the girls. On the boys side we had Win Flaggart with a fourth place finish, Sawyer Krohn in fifth and big Ben Albrecht finishing eighth. Sunday was the GS. There was a three way tie for third place with Sophie Porter and Quinn Dennehy being two of them and Ava Shoening taking a tenth. The boys were unbelievable. We had five boys finish in the top ten.
