Medway Ski Results in State Selection 2017 Race 5

Article Contributed by: Susan Rozak

Medway Girls had their strongest finish of the season with a 5 place finish. Led by captains Grace Heely and Lissy Kelly but right on their heels were Chiara, Madeline, and Captain Leah with everyone finishing is the top 40 of a 90 plus league roster.

Individually for the Girls Grace ended up 20th for the team race where the top 20 qualify for states.

Medway boys placed 3rd again behind St. Johns and Westborough and ended up with the 3rd best record in the league. Quite an accomplishment for a team where no one races for a mountain.

Individually for the Boys we had our best individual result where Ben Rozak placed 3 in the second run and 5th overall. Jake Rozak had a 10th place finish in the first run and placed 17th overall. Will Donovan had his first ever top 20 finish in run 2 while hot on his heels was Captain Alex Mongeau and rounding it out the top 5 finishers was Peter Jordan where Medway’s top 5 finishers all finished in the top 50.

The racers worked really hard and listened to the coaches this year. There was marked improvement with the results and with their skiing technique. It was nice to see them free skiing with improved techniques.

We hope to practice the Tuesday and Thursday after February vacation and we are trying to get a fun race in for the league that week as well.

States is Tuesday March 7th.
