THE COACHES CORNER
Hello Sparta Ski Team Family. I hope you are all safe and healthy. I am sad to announce that our Banquet Dinner has been postponed. We will most definitely celebrate your accomplishments when we are past this. You have earned it !
Until then, let’s make the best of the situation and stay positive. By practicing safe social distancing, you are part of the solution. Let’s embrace what we have. Take this time to do your school work, cherish family time, video chat with grandparents and classmates, get outdoors, breath the air, walk your dog, listen to music, watch a Warren Miller ski movie, read, exercise, sing, dance, laugh and hope.
We are Spartans. Stay strong and be well.
We wrapped up the high school alpine ski racing season on Monday with the exciting Race Of Champions which consisted of two slalom runs followed by two giant slalom runs. Seven Sparta racers qualified for the race, being in the top 40% of all skiers in the state. Our team Captains led the rankings for Sparta. The five Sparta girls placed as follows: Olivia Finkeldie 11th, Claudia Calafati 22nd, Jillian Stote 24th, Cora Moriarty 26th and Rachel Young 29th. A total of forty girls competed.

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.
