While everyone else in the Seattle area was getting ready for the Seahawks' second run at a Superbowl game last weekend, ski racers and their families headed up to Steven's Pass for a great Northwest Cup GS. The race went off fairly smoothly, so most people were able to watch the game on Sunday also! Our racers showed the strength and depth of the CMAC program with 4-5 kids in the top 15 on both the boys' and girls' sides both days! Our excellent ski race program shines through when you watch a race like this one. Great skiing across the board!
On Saturday, congratulations go out to Alex, Jordy, Talia, Tess and Sydney who placed 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 11th respectively! The rest of the girls finished as follows: Makaela (16), Megan (28), Sarah (31), Hailey (35), Sierra (36), Abby (43), and Piper (56). For the boys, we had Andrew, Christian, Ty and Tristan L. in the top fifteen, placing 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 12th! Great job!

Whether the athlete is winning or racing in their first Northwest Cup ever, the excitement abounds; we as parents and coaches support every one of you kids!!! Keep up all the hard work!
