SKI AND SNOWBOARD TEAMS DID WELL AT PROVINICALS
School District No. 91 (Nechako Lakes) represented the North well again at this year's provincials. From February 25th to March 4th, our ski/snowboard team members and coaches travelled to Whistler. LDSS placed third overall in both the boys' and girls' snowboarding and came second in the combined snowboarding. Nisa Hofer came in third place in the all-terrain event and finished seventh overall. Sam Goertzen came in fourth place in the all-terrain competition. We would also like to congratulate the Fort St. James team, whose girls placed first overall, winning the banner for the second year in a row, while their boys' snowboarders finished fifth overall.
As always, the North remains a force to be reckoned with at provincials. Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Dubé for coaching the teams, chaperoning and driving the mini bus. We would also like to thank Mr. Kelly Lucy for his assistance with chaperoning and driving the mini bus.
