Snowboarders Make HSC OFSAA History!

The arrival of the boys of our snowboard team on the OFSAA podium is a feel-good, underdog story. Reflecting on a challenging season, it was through sheer grit and determination that they took the CISAA gold to qualify for OFSSA. On Thursday, February 26 they faced not only the competitors they defeated by the slimmest of margins in the CISAA division, but 160 of the very best snowboarders in the province.

Despite seemingly insurmountable odds, Coach Webber knew the team had five solid racers, each with the skills and talent needed to place the team in the top three. After the first run, their combined results placed the boys in 4th, just 11 points behind the 3rd place team, and with only two points separating them from 5th and 6th teams.

The team’s determination was evident in the second run of the day. Several boarders improved their times lifted valuable places from their opponents. Their team performance earned the boys’ team OFSAA bronze—the first OFSAA snowboarding team medal in HSC history.
