The 2016-2017 Alpine Skiing Team is looking forward to a snow-filled season after disappointing weather last year. Eagerly awaiting snowfall, the team is actively conditioning and weightlifting with Stella Strength to best prepare themselves for the upcoming season. Consisting of only four Upper School students, the team is young, eager, and excited for the upcoming winter. After having lost a great portion of last year’s team, the Alpine Skiing Team is hoping to see younger students take on much-needed leadership roles in both practice and races. ISL Alpine Skiing is extremely competitive this season as St. Sebastian’s, Nobles, and Middlesex all return proven racers. The ski team kicks off their season following winter break and runs through the end of February. After placing third place last season, the team hopes the extra conditioning and reps in the weight room will turn into an ISL Championship and NEPSAC Championship. Although the road is tough, the team hopes to make strides as the season progresses in order to make a run at the Championship.
