WINTER PARK — Ski & Snowboard Club Vail U14 alpine racers excelled at the United States Ski and Snowboard Association Rocky/Central U14 Regional Championships in Winter Park this past week. This championship series featured the top performing 12- and 13-year-old males and females from the Rocky/Central Region competing in slalom, giant slalom, super-G and kinder kombi.

“Thirty-six of our U14 men and women earned spots for this regional championship series based on their performances in qualifiers earlier in the season. The championships allow these athletes to test themselves against the best racers from the 19-state Rocky/Central Region,” said Karen Ghent, Ski & Snowboard Club Vail alpine program director. “Our U14 team is truly a force. Not only did they bring home all but one available gold medal but they showed so much depth with six different athletes winning those golds, Ski & Snowboard Club Vail dominating the top 10 in over half the races and athletes turning in strong performances by the later runners. We are so proud of this team for working so hard to this point and getting to experience the payoff. Congratulations go to the kids and their dedicated coaches.”

“I am extremely pleased with the performance of our team,” said Terry DelliQuadri, Ski & Snowboard Club Vail U14 head coach. “We qualified more athletes than any other club to these championships. Here in Winter Park they have been a force, with our top athletes dominating and many others achieving personal bests. I’m especially proud how our entire team is gelling as a group, having fun and supporting each other.”
