National development team member Brodie Seger went from bib 41 to 3rd overall in the Feb 9th giant slalom. Teammate Jack Crawford stood beside him on the junior podium.

Nor-Am racers headed south to New York, specifically to the 1980 Olympic venue of Whiteface. Both men and women contested giant slalom, super-G and alpine combined in three days of racing.

The BC Team left Whiteface, NY with some very respectable results. Antonia Wearmouth and Stefanie Fleckenstein finished 4th and 5th respectively in Friday's Nor-Am super-G. In the men's SG Riley Seger started 33rd to finish 10th; Cameron Alexander started 51st and moved way up to an impressive 12th place finish; Sam Mulligan grabbed 18th spot overall; Dominic Unterberger wore bib 54 and came in 17th; Max Peiffer started 58th and came 23rd; Pat Carry started 60th and finished 28th; and rookie Max Kirshenblatt started 67th and closed the day in 38th place.

FLASH QUOTES:

PL Dumoulin (Head Coach Men’s BC Ski Team) – "I am happy with the results over the past couple of days in Whiteface. It's been tough so far this trip with a very competitive and deep field of international racers for these Nor-Am stops. The boys have been skiing well and battling hard, and it's good to see that it's starting to pay off in the last super-G and alpine combine today. Looking forward to bringing this momentum to our next stop in Bromont"

Ryan Jazic (Head Coach Women's BC Ski Team) – "It was a very good couple of days for the women's team! We've done a lot of speed trading in the off season and at Sun Peaks which has helped us prepare very well for the speed disciplines. We consider SG to be one of our strengths. Antonia has been battling some injuries lately but was able to put together her best performances so far this season with a fourth and fifth place, and Stef was able to finish with a very strong combined race (4th) and great 5th in the SG today. Hopefully we can keep building on these performances heading into a very busy race schedule coming up".

Cameron Alexander (BCST/WMSC) – "It was a bit of a tough Nor-Am race series, but it feels good to finish it off with a good result in the SG and the alpine combined."

Antonia Wearmouth (BCST/Grouse Tyee) – "These last few races were a big step in the right direction for me. For the first half of the season, I had been struggling to find the finish line with the speed I know I have in the tank. The super-G track in Whiteface is really sweet and the snow was perfect, so I'm really happy to have taken advantage of it. Having two strong finishes in a row is awesome and gets me excited for the next ones!”

Nick Cooper (Head Coach BC Alpine) – "This eastern Nor-Am swing has provided very strong competition on both the men's and women's side. The girls have proven they are some of the best young racers in North America, and the boys have battled hard against fields full of World Cup athletes. I'm very proud of the work this group has put in so far and look to continue to build from these series for the rest of the season."
