    Snowsports Championships

    Victorian/National Interschools Snowsport Championships

    On the 24th -25th August Saint Ignatius had two students represent the school in the interschool snowsports championships at Mt. Buller:  Fergus Cotter and Samuel O’Brien from Year 8.

    Fergus competed in the giant slalom event and the snowboard cross. Samuel competed in the snowboard cross and the slopestyle competition. Both boys finished in the middle of the field for snowboard cross which was a great effort. In the slopestyle event, Samuel came 6th in the state and qualified for nationals. 

    Slopestyle is a freestyle event where the snowboarder completes a course with a variety of obstacles including rails, jumps and other terrain park features. Points are scored for amplitude, originality and quality of tricks.  

    Samuel returned on the 7th September to Mt. Buller (in blizzard conditions) for the national competition and came 11th. 

    Congratulations Samuel and Fergus on your achievements at the interschool snowsports.
