Skiers medal at Troll

The Timberland Alpine Ski Club had two back-to-back successful weekends at Troll Mountain to kick off February.

The Timberland Alpine Ski Club had two back-to-back successful weekends at Troll Mountain to kick off February.

The first was the under-12 and under-14 Teck Northern Zone Race. TASC sent three under-14 skiers and one under-12 skier — Austin Boehm, Mathew Matheson, Keeley Holloway and Nathan Boehm.

“All of them placed well,” said Nancy Greene Ski League co-ordinator Lisa Young.

In the under-14 boys division Saturday Austin finished first in both his first and second races, while Matheson was third in his first race and second in his second race.

In the under-14 girls division Holloway reached the podium in first and third. Nathan, in the boys under-12 division, was sixth in his first race and seventh in his second race.

On Sunday, where run times were combined to determine winners, Austin was first, Matheson was third, Keeley was second and Nathan was seventh.

The following Family Day weekend the TASC returned to Troll Mountain for its annual Nancy Greene Festival.

“We took 13 racers to the event featuring courses in glalom, moguls and combi,” Young said.

“The kids also competed in fun events of longest jump and fastest radar. Enjoyed the fantastic spring-like conditions which saw many of the kids tossing their jackets to ski in their T-shirts. Quite a large change from last year’s -30 C adventure.”

With more than 100 racers the TASC competed with clubs from Prince George, Quesnel, Kamloops and Manning Park.

“We were happy to show many top-10 finishes and also some podium finishes.”

Throughout both weekends the skiers were guided by coaches Mike Boehm, Sarah Gash and Rownen Manning.

The results from the Nancy Greene Festival are as follows:

Glalom

• Gideon Emke – first (born in 2009)

• Meshach Emike – third (2007)

• Grace Turner – third (2004)

• Ruan Koster – third (2003)

• Emma Boehm – third (2008)

• Grace Turner – second (2004)
