“Meg won every race she competed in,” said ASC president Don Grant in an email. “She is an outstanding athlete.”

Other top 10 performances included  Jesse Howden fourth, Grace Grant eighth, Reece Howden seventh, Elsa Knutson ninth,  Keefer Wells eighth and Ella Pasin 10th.

A number of younger skiers from Apex had strong results as well; Aaron Leaman a silver and a bronze medal. Chase Davies fifth, Melissa Lapraire fifth, Tamatea Westby seventh and Hanna DeBoer ninth.

The Apex Ski Club also just started their Nancy Greene (Carvers) program Jan. 6, with over 50 families involved.  The club has many more races and events lined up for the next few months. To find out more about the club, check www.apexskiclub.com.
