Mount Baker Secondary School girls ski team returns from B.C. Secondary School Alpine Ski & Snowboard Championships with silver

The Mount Baker Secondary School girls ski team has returned home with silver medals following a strong performance at the B.C. Secondary School Alpine Ski and Snowboard Championships March 2 to 4 at Revelstoke Mountain Resort.

The team of four ski racers, including Andrea Lockart, Katie Clarke, Robyn Anderson and Sarah Andreas, combined for 40 points in the terrain giant slalom, good enough for a second-place finish behind York House School (Vancouver), which claimed a gold-medal finish with 47 points.

“The girls did well in the giant slalom, but performed outstanding in the giant slalom terrain,” coach Karen Kettenacker wrote via email.

Lockart led the way in the terrain giant slalom, finishing fourth with a run of 00:32.55.

Clarke (12th), Anderson (26th) and Andreas (32nd) rounded out the group.

On the girls’ first day of competition, the team finished fifth (33 points) in the giant slalom.

Once again, Lockart led the crew, this time with an 11th place finish through two runs (1:01.62)

Clarke (14th), Anderson (30th) and Andreas (36th) each finished both of their runs.

With 48 points earned, York House School also claimed the giant slalom title.

A total of 68 skiers raced in both events.
