CHS Skiers Frosting the Competition!

With a time of 1:32.57, Colchester High School sophomore Abigail Harrington took second place in the slalom race in the March 7–9 Eastern High School Championships in Attitash, New Hampshire! The event amassed approximately 225 high school skiers from across Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and the Southern Alpine Racing Association (SARA).

And CHS senior Ethan Thibault will compete in the New England Nordic Ski Association (NENSA) Eastern High School Championships at the Mountaintop Inn and Resort in Chittenden, Vermont, on March 14–16. He is among the top twenty-four boys and girls from Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and New York who have qualified to participate in this highly competitive event.

(Last fall, Ethan and fellow CHS classmate Nigel Sarrazin organized a community 5K event to support the Colchester Community Food Shelf—a highly successful venture raising $4,022 and received 228 pounds in food donations.)

And it isn’t just at CHS that students are garnering attention for their athletic prowess. In December, CMS student Myla Jacobs competed in the 2013 USATF National Junior Olympic Cross Country Championships in San Antonio, Texas.
