Huge congratulations to our 2017 Levens School Ski Team who took part in the Kendal School Ski competition involving 15 schools from the south Lakes area. First, the fabulous four skied their way through 5 tough races only to miss qualifying for the final ski-off by a single point in the under 9s competition! Special well done to Elliott who joined the Levens team for the first time this year and had a very promising debut!
This made their hunger for victory even greater and they went on to compete in the under 11s races! Again great enthusiasm and determination made them very strong competitors; racing against children who were much bigger, older and more experienced than themselves. They won many of their individual races and the team secured 20points putting them in joint first place with another school. The top 4 teams qualified for the final ski-off and with more last minute tips for Levens from their coach, Steve Kitchen, they secured an incredible 3rd place; and each received an individual medal.
Levens Ski Team are an inspiration! Although we didn’t manage to retain the title and bring home the trophy this year; our team have exciting times ahead as they develop their skills and experience on the slopes. Well done superstars!
