Intense competition at the NJISRA State Championships this past weekend. With the field narrowed down from 20 high school girls teams to the top 12, the Sparta Girls ski team battled it out. We skied fast and finished strong taking 5th place in the Giant Slalom and 6th place in Slalom. The Sparta Girls team finished 6th place overall at State Championships. I am very proud of the performance from all six varsity racers. Great job this season ladies.
