After winning the Championship last week at CISAA, the School Trained Girls team wished teammate Antonia VonAchten '23 well on her mission to take on all of the other High School Associations across Ontario at OFSAA.
Antonia travelled to Collingwood to compete in the OFSAA Alpine Championship at Osler Bluff Ski Club from Monday, February 24 to Tuesday, February 25. The weather was exceptional, hovering around 3 degrees with full sunshine on Monday and making conditions perfect! The first event was Slalom which required precision and serious focus. The course was challenging but Antonia’s hard work and dedication was rewarded with two excellent runs. She found herself in fourth place after the first run. On the second run, she was exceptionally focussed and driven to improve. Antonia followed through and was flawless on her second run finishing her first day in second place and was presented the silver medal at the banquet.
On Tuesday she repeated her success through dedication and hard work. After her runs on Monday, she skied Giant Slalom practice runs until the bus left for the hotel. She was focussed and ready on Tuesday morning. She inspected the course and was ready for the first run of the Giant Slalom. Antonia was intensely focussed and driven to succeed, pushing herself on both runs and earning another silver. Out of a field of the top 85 high school trained participants from all over Ontario, Antonia placed first overall at the competition. Congratulations Antonia, OFSAA High School Girls Trained Individual Champion!
