‘Tricia’ has dominated the NYS J3 Circuit this 2012 Season! There is no one reason that has led her to such success, but rather the well rounded, driven, considerate focus that she displays each and every day. Tricia is always one of the first athletes to the hill and among the last to leave. She is always there to help the coaches and athletes set and pull courses, assist fellow competitors, look after her younger siblings, and all the while she sports a glowing smile. It is this glowing smile, positive attitude, and unselfish approach coupled with a mental focus and drive second to none that has allowed Tricia to Ski her way on to the podium of nearly every event she has entered this season.
These results include a 3rd Place in the USSA ERS SL and NYS J3 Giant Slalom Champion, and now Tricia has added to her long list of successes this season by rocking the field in the SG at J3 Eastern Regional Championships held at Sugarloaf, ME. Tricia led the field to win the SG by nearly a half a second, a huge margin in the ski racing world! This result has qualified Tricia to attend the USSA Talent ID Project this April held in Park City, UT and/or the AM-CAN Race Series in Mt. Tremblant, Quebec March 23-25, 2012.
Tricia has accomplished all this while transitioning to traditional school for the first time since 3rd Grade, where she has secured spots on the Nardin Academy Soccer and Crew Teams. Tricia does not only excel in sports, she is also involved in the Campus Ministry, Student Council, HoliMont Phoenix Adaptive Program, and received the Presidential Scholarship to Nardin Academy. This is the highest Academic Achievement at Nardin, which is given to the student who receives the highest mark on the entrance exam.
Congratulations to Tricia and Good Luck in the Events to Come!
