Addi Reihe, Staff Writer

On Saturday, February 5th, the VMS Telemark Team brought nine athletes to Copper for most of their first IFSA competition of the season. Out of 14 girls competing, VMS brought five; sophomores Sage Evans and Quincy Pribramsky, juniors Addi Reihe and Ella Towle, and senior Catie Reihe. Although nobody podiumed, they all put down some insane lines and had an incredible time skiing a new mountain and having fun with their teammates. There was a larger showing for the 15-18 men’s skiing category, with 38 competitors. The Telemark Team brought juniors Thomas Turilli and Simon Chantler, and seniors Kyle McCutchen and Will McLoota. The boys all had incredible runs and caught some big air throughout. After throwing down two huge 360s and some massive air, McLoota made history as one of the first VMS telemark skiers to win first place in an IFSA competition.
