Hemlock Ski Club

The little club that could! Great news for the Hemlock Ski Club from the 2015 Whistler Cup via Head Coach Kelly Blair below: “So after qualifying for U16 Whistler Cup via a season long points race, Katrina showed everyone that HSCers are fast! In the Super G on Friday she started 68th and moved up 15 places, yesterday in the GS she had a great day and placed 23 places higher than her start number on a very challenging and bumpy course with limited visibility - then today under sunny skies she saved her best for last. She started 68th as she was pretty much at the back of the BC quota spots but took charge with a better than great run and moved all the way up to 37th. Not yet happy as a couple of her arch rivals just barely beat her in run one she laid down the 28th fastest 2nd run time to finish the day at 31st - up an amazing 37 places higher than her start position. She did not only beat the girls that she wanted to but beat the majority of the BC WC Team girls in doing so. As a reward for her efforts, BC Alpine staff gave Katrina a 2015 Team BC jacket to inspire her to make the 2016 BC Team next year. This was a great day for Katrina and HSC!”
