Good Evening MAST Families and Athletes:
What a team we have! A BIG Thank you to our wonderful parents and coaches who came through to put on an awesome ski race tonight. It wasn't our race to manage, but we ended up filling most of the race worker positions at the last hour. Thank you to our seven person course crew led by chief of course Dan Trockman. That was the most perfectly groomed track I have ever seen. Thank you Jeff Wedren for stepping up at the last minute to serve as starter. He didn't know he was volunteering to stand on the top of Mt Everest for two and a half hours. Thank you to the gates judges who also endured some very cold and windy conditions on the hill. Great job gate judging. We are developing an experienced crew of gate judges. Thank you to the scoreboard recorders, bib distributors, bib collectors, and Matt McConville who stepped in at the end of the day to call the race. Finally, thank you to our magnificent coaching staff. Their hard work with the athletes on the hill every day really showed tonight. Take a look at the results. Seven MAST girls in the top ten, with Julia Westphal in first, Anne McConville in second, and Ramie George in third. On the boys side, Luke Moertel finished in 7th with Sam Moore right behind in 8th. Great skiing boys.
Tonight, you all skied really well. You have improved tremendously. Keep working hard. Your coaches are really proud of you.
Practice bright and early.
