Congratulations to the 18 pupils who took part in the ERSA Schools Championship Event at the Norfolk Snowsports Club on Sunday 30 April 2017. The RHS Ski Team performed with great spirit and determination in a strong field of over 200 competitors from 46 schools.
Some highlights of the day included gold medals for the U14 Mixed Team, featuring Emily King, Mia Maguire, Oli Conway and Amelia Vicos. Following some great skiing from his teammates, Oli Conway held his nerve and put in a steady performance on his crucial final run, securing their hold on the lead.
Not to be outdone the U16 Mixed Team of Alex Jackson, Ben Jackson, Huw Wharmby and Sophie Parsche skied well and took on board advice, ensuring they finished in the bronze medal position.
Our U19 Boys Team of Francois Rossouw, Tom Heley and Dan Foreman were surprised and delighted to earn silver following some eventful and, at times, nail biting racing!
Giles Baker, Max Wou-Smith, Will Penny, Lara Gercek, Alistair Ng, Nicolas Rodriguez and Lucinda Halim should also be congratulated on some creditable performances, showing a marked improvement on their individual times over the two races.
