AKSS Snowsport Champs, 2016


On Monday 13 June a squad of 18 Skiers and Snowboarders headed up to Snowplanet to compete at the Auckland Secondary School Snowsport Championships.  Exceptional results in the ski racing event saw Sacred Heart take six of the top ten placings with George FitzGerald 1st and Finn Bawden 2nd  along with 4th, 5th, 6th and 9th placings, from 86 competitors.  The squad now has its eyes set on the North Island Secondary School Competition at Turoa, Mt Ruapehu in September.


Snowboarders and Slopestyle skiers also had a good day which was excellent preparation for the NISS event.  Callum Craig landed an impressive and very difficult 720 jump in the Slopetyle Ski event, and Hunter Craig and Harry Finnigan scored well in the Snowboard Race.  Well done to all.
