Did you know that Wesleyan had Skiing and Snowboarding teams? Did you know that they are just as awesome as they sound?
On February 16 and 17, the club teams participated in the McBrine Division League Championships up in Vermont. The Women’s Ski Team qualified for USCSA Eastern Regionals after coming in fourth overall, and the men took first place qualifying for Regionals. Michael Creager ’15 and Chris Delaney ’14 came in second and third in the entire Men’s Ski Division.
Not to be outdone, the Wesleyan Snowboarding Team also vanquished the competition. Dylan Penn ’15, Atticus Swartwood ’14, Lina Mamut ’13, and Zach Kaufman ’16 qualified for nationals. This is the snowboarding team’s first year as a club, and Mamut commented, “I’m stoked that Wes got the opportunity to compete in a snowboard league. As a senior, after years of just watching skiers go at it, it’s been incredibly fun to be able to compete with snowboarders from other schools in Slalom and Giant Slalom.”
