CSRT names standout racers
Cooper Spur Race Team competed in the recent U12 championships at Mt. Hood Meadows, where the best young racers in Oregon raced slalom and giant slalom while battling challenging conditions, rain and snow.
CSRT’s 12-person team was led in results by four-tear team member Josh Nardone, who established himself as the fastest 11-year-old in Oregon by finishing first in the both events. On the girl side, Francise Melby was second in slalom, Annika Howell was seventh, Kathy Kaimaktchiev was 10th and Annie Hendrickson was 13th. Sarah Davies (9) was the only U10 on the team to make the top 15, finishing in 15th place in the slalom.
Members of the team compete this weekend in the Buddy Werner Championships at Crystal Mountain, which brings together the best U14 skiers in Oregon, Washington and Idaho.
