The Chatelech ski and snowboard team had a great showing at the North Shore Secondary School Championships held at Whistler-Blackcomb last weekend.

Pearl Deasey took first place overall in girls snowboarding. Pearl, a Grade 8 student racing against competitors in grades 8 through 12, came though the gates a full 10 seconds ahead of the second place finisher.

Lauren Pudek added to the girls' success by taking home the third place ribbon in her category. Both girls qualified for the provincial championships.

Caleb Burnham raced hard to win second place in boys snowboarding, with Graden Deasey just 0.67 of a second behind him to take third.

The entire boys snowboarding roster, which also includes Callum Rive, Jasper Deasey, Leif Magnussen and Braydon Fletcher, raced hard and was one of only two teams to qualify for the provincial championships.

The competition was stiff for the skiers, but Pierre Martinet came in ninth place overall, and teammates Jason Fournier, Duncan Bryson and Kaiden DeRoon showed well.

Ella Adams and Ingrid Bryson also raced hard in the girls skiing category.

The racers are looking forward to their upcoming terrain giant slalom, which takes place on a boarder-cross style course. After that, provincial championships are scheduled for March 3 to 5 at Whistler-Blackcomb.
