OFSAA Skiing

15 members of the Jean Vanier Alpine Ski team participated at the OFSAA Championships at Blue Mountain. The weather was sunny and spring like, but the soft conditions made for extremely challenging race conditions. Despite the conditions our Jean Vanier skiers made us proud.

In the Slalom event, L1 Boys Nicholas Orr won individual gold leading his team to a 5th place position and L1 Girls Lily Denis won individual silver leading her team to a 4th place position. L2 Girls Emma Gosselin skied to a strong 5th place overall result leading her team to a 4th place position.

In the GS the Jean Vanier skiers brought home more podium results. Individually Emma Gosselin won silver in the L2 Girls and Brian Donnelly matched her result with a silver medal in the L2 Boys. This is impressive for both of these skiers as they were racing against many senior level skiers.

Finally, in the L1 Girls category Lily Dennis led her team to an OFSAA Gold Championship. Lily was 4th, Sophia Stone was 10th and Grace Foubert was 24th. Also representing the team was Emma C and Somer W.

Congratulations to the entire team on a fantastic couple of days. They made us proud!
