In the wake of a thrilling provincial qualifier at Devil’s Glen, the Hillfield Strathallan Trojan Ski team travelled to Craigleith Wednesday (Feb. 11) for the 2015 Conference of Independent School Athletic Associations championships. The combined format of the race included a giant slalom run in the morning followed by a slalom lap in the afternoon—two very different disciplines to determine the championship.
The Trojan’s Level 2 boys – Will Kornya (1), JD Foxcroft (2), Ben Kornya (6), Carson Foxcroft (11), and Ethan James (37), won CISAA gold and are now primed for the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) meet Feb. 22-24.
The entire team brought its best game to the competition. Brogan Cairns ended her CISAA season with a solid performance, placing sixth in the combined race and securing the same placing for her overall ranking. Her coaches are excited about her prospective seasons with the HSC alpine team as the college looks to build the girls’ ski program.
Jen Armstrong is congratulated for reaching her goal to finish the season in the top 10. She secured a ninth place ranking overall. Nathalia Wellenreiter should also be extremely proud for finishing the season in 15th place overall.
In their first season with the team, two new HSC skiers demonstrated the resiliency the Trojan ski team is known for – Luke DeJonge placed14th overall for the season, while Luke Settle placed 17th.
