Well, there hasn’t been a lot going on since the season ended. I’ve been in school and playing lacrosse, also helping out on the local Special Olympic Swim Team on the weekends.
This year, the KHS JV (yes, yet another season without a Varsity sport, that makes 3 winter seasons as my only letters…) Lacrosse team went 3-2-1 with some adverse conditions: shortened games, half being cancelled. My third season this year of being captain ended on a well fought game in the schools stadium, although we lost 5-4 (we were down 4-1 at the half).I am returning to the "Land made for Scouting" this summer, my second season on the Hidden Valley waterfront staff. I'm hoping I can get some good training in, as we do not get much time off.
The Saturday following the Eastern Cups was the NHIAA Meet of Champions at Gunstock, which takes the top 10 racers from all 4 divisions in both skate and classic, and races them to determine the number one public school skier in the state.
- My teammate Sean Doherty helped lift the US Youth mixed Biathlon/XC Relay team to the bronze medal at the Inaugural Youth Winter Olympic Games in Innsbruck Austria.
- There was another Eastern Cup.
- The Kennett Boys capped off their undefeated season with a shared championship with Hanover.
- I won both the Division Skate and Classic championship, as well as the Division and State Skimeister awards.
First, our skate race that was scheduled for December 20 at Great Glen Trails, then scheduled for this Wednesday and later Thursday night at Cranmore, has again been postponed to a later date, keeping our YTD race total at 1.
