February 15, 2013 - On Wednesday, February 13th the SDSSAA/NOSSA Alpine Championships took place showcasing just shy of 100 of the best high school racers who competed in slalom and giant slalom. Conditions were perfect for racing and all of the skiers took advantage of the favourable racing conditions. In the Level 1 division (no club racing affiliation or experience past Nancy Greene) Marymount Academy and St. Benedict’s were looking to make it three consecutive championships in three consecutive years. In the morning slalom runs, Marymount set the mark and reaffirmed that they are still a strong force in the city. Katherine Boyce earned her first gold medal in alpine competition in only her second year of ski racing and she wasn’t finished there. She finished the afternoon giant slalom run in second and was the silver medallist. This resulted in Katherine being crowned the overall Level 1 Girls’ combined champion and double-gold medallist. The success didn’t stop with Katherine. Veteran high school racer Danielle Burla captured the gold medal in the girls’ giant slalom after having a difficult morning in the slalom. Overall, the Regals finished with Katherine as the gold medallist, first-year racer Carissa Roy as the silver medallist, second-year racer Kelsey Roy in third place, and veteran Brittany Major in fifth place. This was more than enough to earn Marymount their third NOSSA championship in three consecutive years. Team members include: Danielle Burla, Katherine Boyce, Carissa Roy, Kelsey Roy, Brittany Major, McKenna Urso, Toni Teale, Kelsey Bell, Brier Cook, and Marika Moskalyk.

For St. Benedict’s, it was very much of the same. Ryan Bell was the overall Level 1 boys’ combined silver medallist. Adam Kirkwood and Arthur Cavallin finished fourth and fifth respectively overall. These outstanding finishes also earned the St. Benedict’s Level 1 boys’ team their third NOSSA championship in three consecutive years. Team members include: Ryan Bell, Adam Kirkwood, Arthur Cavallin, Jarvis Hill, Alex Andlar, Justin Fabian, and Dana Petrone.

Both teams will be representing Northern Ontario at the Provincial OFSAA Championships to be held at Blue Mountain in Collingwood from February 24th – 26th.
