FLASH QUOTES:

Martin Grasic (BC Ski Team/Windermere Valley Ski Team) – "I was very happy to win the overall at the U18 nationals in Collingwood this week. It's the first time I have won an award that requires that level of consistency, so I think it was a big step forward for me. It was also a nice way to end the week after struggling the last two days in the GS. This result, along with Team BC finishing second in the provincial standings, goes to show what a great team we had at the event, both coaches and athletes."

JP Daigneault (Men's BC Team Coach) – ""The U18 championships at Ontario’s Osler Bluff and Georgian Peaks yielded more than just the best provincial medal tally on the men's side for Team BC. It also gave us confirmation that we have the strongest development program in the country, with Martin Grasic (BC Team/Windermere Valley Ski Club) and Brodie Seger (BC Team/Whistler Mountain Ski Club) combining to win more than half the runs at the event, and Grasic earning both the National slalom title and the overall title.”
