The Goshen High Ski team was able to hit the slopes in the last several weeks and brought home a few medals.

The season was cut short due to COVID-19 pandemic and the state meet in Lake Placid was cancelled.

Still, but the ski team prevailed and made Goshen High School proud.

Coaches Tom Gilbert and Noreen Guerra accompanied the girls’ varsity team to Mount Peter in Warwick on Wednesday, Feb. 24, to compete in Giant Slalom and Slalom. T

he next day, the boys team traveled to Holiday Mountain in Sullivan County to compete and cheer on the seniors as they took their final run down the mountain as high dchool race skiers.

More than 40 HS students from Section IX participated in the races under beautiful blues skies with socially distanced parents cheering.

There was no awards ceremony this year.

Still, Senior Tallon Clark and Junior Jake Kriney received medals for their outstanding skiing.

Seniors Tallon Clark, Ryan Mistretta and Annie Shih have been with the team for four years and they will be missed. It’s been gnarly.
